Emotional Intelligence v. Emotional Schemas
Blinded By Rage
Rage is an intense form of anger. Most of us are full of rage and don't realize it, also, rude and obnoxious while unaware. Anger takes us places that we cannot or have a hard time coming back from. The harboring of resentment can be obvious or insidious, manifesting itself in many forms. Unexpressed bitterness can lead to depression and other disorders, for example, eating disorders.
Rage manifests when anger is not managed. A means of financial control can include intentionally withholding financial assistance to someone. A lot of physical rage derives from financial issues, especially the lack of finances and poor management of it. Verbal rage are the things we say, intentionally or unintentionally to hurt someone.
The tongue is the most unruly member of the body; however, we can be trapped in our own silence. One thing is for sure, when a "word" reaches the destination it is supposed to reach, it will shut a lot of mouths.
It is important to manage emotions for our overall well-being. We have habits of keeping what we want to destroy and destroying what we want to keep. Anger is fear based and holds a "victim mentality." Its active and passive, when muted, it can show up in alcohol and drug abuse. Physical manifestations of anger include skin disorders, digestive problems, and issues with the nervous system.
Once we come to terms with our anger and admit that we have it, it can be managed and the risk of vulnerability will diminish over time.
