Anger or Fear?

by Shervin on September 14, 2015

Fear is a major part is human psyche. We are taught not to admit and acknowledge our negative emotions specially our fear. Admitting fear is considered a sign of weakness especially for men. In some spiritual circles it is addressed with slogans to brush it off as if it does not exist or is imaginary.

I was in a discussion group and a person was telling us how he tries to be calm and ignore his anger when someone cuts him off on a highway. I asked him if ignoring one’s feeling is healthy. I also questioned if his anger is his true emotion (perhaps is fear)?

We may be angry that people ‘should’ be more respectful, when driving. I believe that it may be a mask to hide our true feeling which may be fear. What if we are afraid to get hurt when someone cuts us off and it is not to be OK to be afraid so we express it under cover of anger! What would be like if we acknowledge our fear rather than ignoring it or masking it?

Next time, when anger arises, consider exploring your reactions and investigate if some other emotion like fear is underneath.

Bei uns im Ruhrgebiet sind die tiefen Bohrungen schon seit langem genehmigungspflichtig, da niemand weiss, welche Beschaffenheit der Boden unter dem eigenen Haus genau hat.Da hierzulande der Platz für die großen, flachen Kollektoren meist fehlt und man im kleinen Gärtchen keine Luft-Luft-Anlage installieren kann, bedeutet das, dass die Wärmepumpe praktisch kaum angewendet wird.Ich finde es richtig, dass das Grundwasser vor beliebigen Bohrungen geschützt wird.Viele Grüße,Ingrid

Yes Phillipians 4 v8 is one of my 'hold tight' verses, also 'my grace is sufficient for you' from one of Paul's epistles, but can't remember which. I think that quoting Scripture is one of the most effective ways of banishing Satan, so the more of God's Work I know from memory the better.
