80 EFT Tapping Statements for Anger and Frustration
Description for Books 2019
Is anger an issue for you? Anger and frustration are natural emotions. Anger and frustration are not in themselves right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy, appropriate or inappropriate.
It is the expression of anger and frustration that makes it right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy, appropriate or inappropriate.
Unhealthy anger is when anger is directed toward another for the purpose of being hurtful and to do harm. Wrong and inappropriate anger is when anger is violent and is used to punish, intimidate, control, and manipulate.
Frustration is a mild form of anger.
Anger that is repressed and aggressive is unhealthy anger. It is unhealthy to stuff, ignore, and/or pretend the anger does not exist.
Doug was immensely proud of his son, Andy, until he watched his son (a high school senior) jeopardize his chance at an athletic scholarship to attend college. The count was 3-2, three balls and two strikes. The final pitch was thrown and Andy let it go by. The umpire shouts, “Strike!” Andy has just struck out.
“What’s wrong with your eyes old man?” Andy shouted at the umpire. “That was a ball. It wasn’t in the strike zone. Need instant replay so you can see it in slow motion? I’m not out!”
The umpire stood up and went nose-to-nose with Andy. “You’re out of the game!” shouts the umpire.
“With you as the umpire, it will be a farce of a game! Go umpire a Little League game. That’s more your speed!” shouted Andy even louder.
Later that day when Victoria came home after work, the tension between father and son was so thick you could cut it with a knife. “What’s up between the two of you,” asked Victoria.
In vivid detail Doug angrily told her everything that happened and everything that was said between father and son. “Does it surprise you?” said Victoria calmly.
Not understanding, Doug angrily responded, “What do you mean?”
“Well, like father, like son,” answered Victoria.
Confused Doug asked what she meant.
“Truthfully, your son imitates your behavior and you don’t see it?” said Victoria as she walked into the kitchen to start dinner.
Doug followed his wife into the kitchen. “Explain it to me. I seem to be too dense to get it,” said Doug sarcastically.
Victoria turned from the refrigerator, closed the door and said, “Maybe now is as good a time as ever to have a conversation about your anger.”
“Really, my anger?” said Doug. “My anger is justified.”
With a deep breath, Victoria sat down in front of Doug at the kitchen table and said, “Doug, I’m going to tell you like it is. You are a rageaholic. Anger rules your life. You look for fights.”
EFT Tapping helped Doug to take control of his life and his anger.
