Aggression can be hurtful, painful, humiliating and embarrassing. It is, however, a part of the Human Condition, presenting in various forms; physical, mental, or verbal. Aggression is a state of despair, just like depression and addiction. The Aggressive person, in their despair, tries to control others by violence.
Aggression has the potential of transformation. Aggression is the use of energy in a particular way. That use of energy can be decided on – a choice. Imagine the freedom in making new choices and taking on a new perspective of life. It does take commitment, endurance and much effort to pull oneself in alignment with one’s true-self and to be reminded that we are much bigger than the situation at hand.
The search for purpose and meaning is a universal longing. It is our deepest need to make sense of our lives even in the midst of chaos and change – and yes, even in the despair of Aggression.
As Geri Marr Burdman, Ph.D, explained, “Being the quality of person you want to be – no matter what” could become your new way of living. This choice is ultimately yours to make. For the sake of your true-self and those you are involved with: family, colleagues, and friends, you owe it to yourself, and to them, to take on new life management skills – you deserve to live a happy life!
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor Frankl.
