“Genealogy” of Anger

There is a sequence that is always present in the development of anger.   There is a person or circumstance that occurs which you blame for disrupting your sense of well-being.  As soon as you blame something or someone, you go into the role of a victim.  The result is that of an anger response.  The sequence is:

  • Circumstance/person
  • Blame
  • Victim
  • Anger/frustration

You cannot be angery without first being a victim.  You must first acknowledge that you might be angry.  If you’re thinking, “I Am Not Angry,” you’re probably angrier than you think.
