Psychology of Cancer: Stage 6 Powerless Anger
Powerless Anger…even just those two words standing alone are so powerfully charged. You can almost feel immediately what powerless anger is.
It’s feeling like you are up against something that just isn’t right. Your emotions feel hot and yet you feel hopeless, like there is nothing you can do. A quiet anger.
Flower Society describes this stage as “a result of feeling a victim of injustice, there is suppressed silent anger and rage together with a sense of total powerlessness. The person feels defeated.”
I want to encourage you to first, not feel defeated. Feeling defeated will get you nowhere and if you put your faith in Jesus, anything is possible! Yes even radical healing!
I also want to talk about anger in general. Meeting Jesus has taught me so much about myself and how I can live differently if I choose so. I have learned that anger is a very powerful emotion that drives people to do really crazy things and causes more grief if we react negatively. Yes… even powerless anger is still a powerful emotion. An emotion that will keep you down and keep others away if you don’t choose to confront it and move past.
I have learned we all experience anger, but not all of us know that anger is about you and not others. What I mean is that when you choose to get angry, you are CHOOSING this over your peace and this my friend is a personal choice made only by YOU.
A personal choice. That YOU have. Suddenly it is not powerless. Suddenly you realize you have power to turn things around. A clear mind, a positive heart, this is going to help you heal. This is going to help you get ahead in life.
Feeling powerless happens, but adding in anger is a choice. And if you know me, you know I believe we never stay powerless for long.
