Best of Our Blogs: March 11, 2016

tantrumI have a two-year-old so my home is often filled with the sounds of toddler tantrums. The constant yelling made me wonder where tantrums go when we grow into adults. We may have learned to silence our inner child in public, but how many of us are walking around with our own need to scream?

Take a look at the internet and TV and it’s not hard to see we’re an angry bunch of folks. Chances are we’re projecting our inner state of unhappiness on the world.

Perhaps, our inner child is screaming for validation, for rest, for a chance to be heard. Instead of tapping into how we really feel, we’re sabotaging our relationships with others and our self.

Maybe your road rage with a fellow driver, fight with your neighbor or agitation at the store clerk has little to do with them. Use our top posts this week to start asking yourself what you’re really in need of. Whether it’s advice on dealing with your partner, your illness, or therapy, you’ll start to see that healing yourself will change your life from the inside out.
