Getting Rid of Anger: Why It Has to Go
Dec 15 2015

"For people in recovery, holding onto anger and resentment is like relentlessly peeling off scabs from a wound that is trying to heal. Even when people swear that they are not angry at anyone, they might actually have pent up anger pointed at themselves which can then take on the form of depression or self-loathing. These negative emotions tend to manifest in one’s behaviors, thoughts and interactions with people, likely putting a dent on your progress."

All addictions are symptoms of something else that is wrong in our lives.

Anger is for a reason. We always get some reward out of our actions.

Addictions are nothing more than displaced or substitute compulsive behaviors or actions intended to give the person control over a helpless situation in life. Compulsive habits are never random, they are always preceded by an emotional issue considered very important to the individual. These circumstance are always preceded with feeling of overwhelming helplessness, feeling trapped and out of control.

Instead of a healthy normal (direct) action that conveys control over our issues, anger abusers exploit the quick fix or mood changer of anger (displaced) actions. For example: Getting angry and releasing one's emotions is a temporary relief because the individual is doing something about it! Road rage is a classic example.

Addictions are all about dealing with emotional issues that are very important to us and how we regain control of those issues. We always act to regain control in some manner.

The question is: Do we escape from the trapped helpless feeling by taking control of our behavior with drugs (displaced) or do we utilize healthy (direct) behavior? The choice is always up to our free will.

I chose direct health assertive Christ Driven Behavior (CDB) instead of displaced behavior in order to regain control over feeling helpless, powerless, trapped and lacking control. I changed my, "Thinking," and God changed my life.

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
