"Feeling Angry is Wrong" ....wait a minute....
"Feeling angry is wrong."
This is something most of us learned somewhere along the way in our lives--particularly when it comes to the work setting.
Except it's complete BS. Feeling angry isn't wrong. Neither is feeling annoyed, aggravated, frustrated, or any other emotion in that zip code.
Our emotions are a primal system for our performance as human beings & they have essential information for us.
The problems come in when we speak 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 our emotions, rather than 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙖𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜 FOR 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙚𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨.
When we're speaking from our emotions, we often show victim, villain or martyr behaviors.
When we speak for our emotions, we demonstrate leader behaviors.
It's a massive difference & one worth learning!
