I’ve been very privileged to coach some young teenagers. These young teenagers are having trouble making sense of what they are feeling. They get mad and express their anger. Not only that, these teenagers are turning their anger in on themselves because they don’t know how to change what they are feeling.
One young teenager I was talking with was upset and angry. While angry this teenager acted out damaging things and causing some hardship to others. In our coaching session this teenager started to recognize where some of the anger was coming from. They could feel the emotions expressed through their physical body. They could piece together events in their life causing them to get upset. There was greater awareness to work with.
At the end of the session I talked with the teenager about life lessons. I shared how they will experience things in life which are difficult. Those difficult experiences offer them life lessons to help them grow. What could be learned from their experience? What might the Universe be trying to teach them?
I invited the teenager to see the life lesson of how uncontrollable anger can potentially hurt people, cause damage and hardship. They experienced what that felt like for them. Now they are getting a sense of what it feels like to move through their emotions resolving the anger inside. With that awareness they may not be acting out like they did before.
I helped the teenager see how the Universe had given them a gift. There will be potential messages with difficult situations. They can now work on being mindful of the dynamics that take place when emotions start to surface in their life.
I personally feel when it comes to everyday living, feelings and emotions are not something to be taken lightly. People become very vocal when they are frustrated and angry. What causes people to feel what they are feeling? How can people resolve the unrest inside resulting in experiencing a more fulfilling purposeful life?
