Who Are You Really Mad At?

This is kind of a trick question. It is often times discussed at the Kabbalah Center in Los Angeles. Anger is a natural part of life. Anger and aggression can come in many forms. It is these forms that are often times discussed by the rabbis at the center. You can meet the Kabbalistic people at social media.

Who are you really mad at? Sometimes it is a boss. Sometimes is a friend or family member. Sometimes it is a partner. Sometimes we get angry at a co-worker or our own children. We get angry, aggressive, and dismissive when they fail to behave the way we expect them to.

The blocks of anger

There are many building blocks to anger. We often times we go through the anger and then feel ashamed afterward. The only reason we feel ashamed is because we have not addressed the direction of the anger. We have not addressed who or what is making us angry on the inside. This is just one of the many blocks we discuss at the center.

No one is going to behave the way we expect them to 100% of the time. Our expectations are part of the problem. We often times get angry at ourselves and blame the other person. This is part of what causes us to be biased or prejudiced towards certain people. We all live with judgment every day. It is this judgment that causes us to be angry.

“When we point the finger, there are 4 fingers point back to us”.

Getting to the route of our anger is part of the solution. Certain people come into our lives for a reason. They are there to expose our own anger and aggressiveness. Recognizing this is part of the healing process. Sometimes the person we are disgusted by is ourselves. It takes a third party coming in to show us this.

Anger is a human emotion and a part of life. We can reduce our anger greatly by figuring out “who we are truly mad at”.
