Practice Larger Perspectives

What follows is an excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts.

When feelings of justified anger arise, find a larger perspective. You can practice diffusing and releasing feelings of anger. Do it for your own wellbeing, not for their sake.

Looking at all the details of the situation fuels the fire. So take the opposite tactic to snuff it out and redirect your creative energy where it can serve you best.

Get general and give the benefit of the doubt if you want to get back to the love side of the scale. You can soften your response to frustration or irritation rather than anger. Soothe yourself. Learn to give “outs” to whoever or whatever you feel angry about. Go as big as you need to in order to feel better.

Give ridiculous outs. Laugh as a silly thought that excuses them pops into your head, and you’ll feel less angry. It’s vital that you do so you can move up to a more powerful feeling on the love side of the scale rather than continuing down the fear side of the scale.
