How many times have you angrily erupted and the recipient looks at you like you’ve just grown two heads? What’s up with that? This displaced anger or “over reaction” is nearly always a sign that your emotional tank is too full. Sometimes if your erupt at someone, it doesn’t have anything to do with them specifically – that is when your feelings/anger is “displaced.” Other times, the person you spew verbal vomit has just ticked you off for the laaaaaaaasssst time! Maybe their comment was innocent, but it held just enough toxic energy to trigger you – like the match to the powder keg.
This is when you need to step back and self-examine why your emotional barometer is pegged to the max. We all do it, have done it, and (I for sure) will end up doing it again. It’s definitely time for emotional introspection so you can address the real cause of your anger.
