I'm going to take another stab at this to further clarify...Rather, it's the injury or threat that causes the anger.Having seperated out fear from anger, the threat that causes anger is a threat to our beliefs. To take a very real example from the board...I read a SP post that states he believes emergency rooms should allow people to die on the front steps if they don't have insurance or money to pay for care.When I read that post it made me angry! I think the reason it makes me angry is that I also believe that people are loving and caring, and this belief is certainly threatened by the post. So what do I do to resolve the conflict? I personally established a new belief. A belief that SP believes that if ER's actually had such a policy, it would never come into effect, because people would become responsible adults and fly right. Personally, I did not have to dig any deeper than that to get to the point where my anger had dissipated. Again, I may be wrong in this, but at least my belief system is again consistent with my reality... And I believe that once that happens the anger will go away.--Alan
