Cold or repressed anger lingers. When individuals do not in a healthy way express anger or situations, then other passive ways of aggression can emerge. Anger is a healthy emotion when properly channeled and it is important to communicate anger in a good and safe way to others. When anger is allowed and permitted to linger it can lead to bigger problems and issues later down the road.
The article,”Speaking Up When Most Stressed” by Lorlan Oberlin discusses why it is important to communicate and speak when stressed and not to let it sit within. She states,
“Build an emotional vocabulary to label negative emotions. This removes the fear of expressing yourself. Find feeling charts/wheels online through an image search. List words using a thesaurus. Choose the precise feeling word which may reveal vulnerability. That’s okay. Opening up and being vulnerable leads to deeper interpersonal connection and intimacy for romantic relationships.”
