It is common for people to repress their anger, aggression, and hostility; they view anger as unpleasant, undignified, and even as a moral failure or spiritual setback. They do not realize that repressed anger is nonetheless the energy of anger and, if not acknowledged and worked through, it will have deleterious consequences to their health and overall progress.
A helpful approach is to view the energy of anger positively and to use it to fire up your ambitions and actions in a useful way. Think of a relationship or situation either past or present that is causing you to feel angry and resentful. Write down how this energy of anger can be focused in a positive way, toward achieving a goal or project. For example: The energy of anger spurred me to wash the kitchen floor, which I had been putting off.
