Experiencing anger in a life-giving way for some may seem like a paradox. However, every emotion has the potential for good if we seek to understand where it is coming from and are able to control where we take it. Sometimes we can figure out the best way to express anger within ourselves or our community. Other times we need to seek professional help. It is only when we deny or dismiss people’s emotions that we create toxic expressions. In addition to these ideas Jeff and Mona also discuss their personal feelings of anger and how it has manifested in their own lives. This episode closes out with a round of Judging a Book by its Cover.
