Mindful Moments Episode 14 Emotionally Aggressive Relationships
One way to tell if a belief is keeping you from being the person you were meant to be, is to consider the consequences of that belief. Most emotional aggression comes from beliefs that we can change the behavior of other people. In fact, the definition of emotional aggression is: “Using our own emotional states in an attempt to control the behavior of others.”
Emotional aggression occurs when others refuse to live up to our expectations of how we believe they should behave and what they should feel. If we use our emotions to insist they meet our demands, we’ve engaged in emotional aggression.
