RE: Empowered by Anger?
MD we used to belong to a 12 step program called ISA. Same steps. I remember being stuck on the one where you make amends. it was early in recovery and that step pissed me off. why should I apologize??????? eventually I recognized that I too have hurt others. Sometimes as a guard but still...

As for the anger we used to facilitate. we covered anger management - those who can't, teach. But the philosophy behind anger was that it was a secondary emotion. a shield to cover fear, frustration, loss of control or hurt. i am most likely to explode when I am hurt. always been that way. better to attack than be attacked. for us anger is the hardest thing to work out.

Just talking  RE: Empowered by Anger?
We've heard of ISA. Doesn't apply to us, but we know you're only mentioning it for illustrative purposes.

We went to CoDA and Al-Anon meetings for about two and a half years until realizing we were multiple, and that we had too many issues that couldn't be addressed in the 12-step rooms.

We agree about anger being a shield to cover fear. People we know elsewhere online have mentioned this as well. Charity and the others who are struggling with anger are slowly learning to deal with it.

Thanks,

MDs

unity, could you at least post something about the content of your video choice to give others an idea of what it contains.

The last video in itself it's mostly people dancing and a dj playing, there is nothing specially 'graphic' in it, the music it's hard dancefloor music, the lyrics are about reaction to disrespect.
