Defending Anger, Angrily: “I Am Not Angry!”

Defending Anger, Angrily: “I Am Not Angry!” | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

Years ago, I was a very uptight person. I didn’t see myself that way. I saw myself as being in control, of myself and of, well, everything else. I never got upset, never cried, never asked for help or let anyone see if I was struggling. Of course, I never struggled. Thinking back, I never really laughed, either, not a deep belly laugh.

Tiny Wisdom: Your Pain Is Real | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
One of the most frustrating things in the world is feeling something painful and having other people tell you that you shouldn’t be upset.

Self-esteem has long been touted as a key ingredient for success. But psychologist Heidi Grant Halvorson says on her The Science of Success blog that recent research suggests high self-esteem does not predict better performance or greater success, even if people with high self esteem may believe they’re more successful. But research also suggest a substitute that may be the key to unlocking your potential for greatness: self-compassion.

Ten Steps to Genuine Self-Acceptance

Ten Steps to Genuine Self-Acceptance | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
