Suppressing our anger, or attempting to rid ourselves of it completely is something many people try in order to become ‘more mindful’. But each of our emotions, including anger, serves a valuable purpose.
In this brief episode, Mindfulness Exercises founder Sean Fargo explains how, although we might aspire to be free from anger, a healthy expression of anger can motivate us to set boundaries, or take fierce, compassionate action for what we believe to be right. Sean recommends Sharon Salzberg’s book Real Change for a deeper dive into the subject of healthy anger.
