Underneath Anger, there is always Fear.
This morning as I was having a discussion about a long family/work weekend with my partner we both realized that I was beginning to get angry. Angry with him, angry with his suggestions. Just angry. I decided to go for a walk to clear my head. As I was walking all I could think about was how ridiculous he was and how could he do this or that. After an erratic conversation in my head that moved to a few tears I sat down and began to just listen. What I uncovered was just plain old classic fear. The fear had nothing to do with him or even the weekend. It was bigger. It was a bigger fear inside of me that was creeping through. It was our conversation and the situation that triggered it, and as a result I got angry. As I got up from sitting I felt calmer and clearer. Better able to tackle the day and get to the heart of my desire. The best way to conquer fear: ACTION!
