    Alcohol and Anger

    Alcohol and Anger

    “Liquid Courage” as it is often referred can play a huge role in anger. There are certain predictable things that will happen when we drink alcohol. It is not the best for ourselves or our anger to mix the two. I talk about some of the things that we can experience when we drink while angry.

    The Reason Is Not The Reason

    The Reason Is Not The Reason

    We often confuse the cause of our anger with the stimulus for our anger. We need to separate our anger from what we think is the cause if we ever want to really learn to handle it in a healthy way. Today I talk briefly about REBT therapy and irrational beliefs.

    The Hero's Journey

    When we read any story, myth, poem, limerick, whatever about a hero they all have a very similar structure. This structure can show us a pretty accurate view of what our journey will be as we work with our anger.

Thank you for this podcast. Something I finally can grow from! When I listen to the episodes, I envision myself in the scenarios and I always seem to fit perfectly into the male perspective of the situation. I’m a small business owner in the food industry and we often feel pressured to hide our emotions to make us better or stronger leaders. The pressure to be “tough” can be stressful. I want to change that because I don’t want to continue losing my friends and family to my anger. The short episodes fit great into my busy schedule too and give lots to reflect on.

Perspective and rewiring the brain.

I started my journey into improving my mental health for myself and my partner with this podcast and I am glad that I did. It has given me the necessary tools and resources to guide me on the path of becoming the person I always wanted to be, and who I feel I am at my core. It has helped remind me that I am in control of the choices I make and how I choose to feel about them. It has also shown me that I can control of how I choose to react and feel in regards to things that happen around me and how others treat me. Don’t let other people bring you down or let things that happen take the wind out of your sails. I have always struggled with depression and it’s something I have always been able to understand as an internal issue. I didn’t grasp that I was also internally responsible for my anger and how I get angry. I thought my anger was a product of how I was being treated or the state of the world and things that are happening around me. I also never considered that my anger might be causing my depression. Wow. I feel liberated. This podcast has granted me serenity and led me on a path of enlightenment. It has inspired me to rewire my brain. I am glad I found this podcast, and I am grateful for its humble and sincere tone. I really wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, and I am glad that I made the initial plunge. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone; whether you have issues with anger or not. We all get angry, and it’s ok to be angry, it’s how we deal with the anger that is the issue. This podcast will help you navigate and overcome that anger.

So glad I found this

I am with the guy below me that commented. I kinda know I had an anger issue but I wasn’t aware to what degree. I’ve only listened to a few episodes and I’ve already learned a ton of stuff. This is changing the way that I think about my anger and emotions completely. Thank you for this
