“So, what’s the next thing we need to do? The first tool I talked about, where we want to know all of our addictions, is an attitude. It’s a desire that needs to grow. The desire of wanting to know about it no matter how shameful it makes me feel, no matter how disgusting it makes me feel, no matter how afraid of it I am, I want to know. We need to develop this desire within us to know. So what do we do next?
After we’ve develop a desire in us to know, what I would suggest to do as a tool is to make a list of everything that
“makes” you angry. Now, the definition of anger is; slight annoyance, mild frustration, frustration, annoyance, you’re being controlled, manipulated, all those things are all part of the anger-based emotions. So, anything that gives you mild annoyance, anything that gives you mild frustration; all of those things, write them all down because underneath every one of them is an expectation.”
