“If you get angry easily, it may be because the seed of anger in you has been watered frequently over many years, and unfortunately you have allowed it or even encouraged it to be watered.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
We are used to the idea that we can be addicted to things such as drugs, food, shopping, etc., but we can be just as addicted to our emotions by practicing certain emotional patterns (such as anger) repeatedly. I touch on this subject in my new e-book and will be exploring this idea in future posts.
The emotional pattern I’m working on breaking up with is anxiety. Do you have any emotional patterns you are addicted to? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
