From anger to peace

While being passionate about peace in the world for as long as I can remember, I was struggling to manage my own anger. My education in science and IT didn’t help. When I started working, I knew that anger was not an emotion allowed at work, but conflicting situations happened frequently as part of the life of the project. I spent a lot of my energy repressing my emotions, not knowing how to express them adequately. All I wanted was to be able to articulate my concerns in an acceptable way so that we could all solve the problems that we were facing.

That’s until I learned about Nonviolent Communication, also known as Compassionate Communication. My first encounter with it was an eye opener and I remember it vividly. I love how it embraces our humanity by welcoming our judgments as what they really are: signals, warming us that something is off.

Now, when something happens, I can sense it very early in the process and decide what I want to do with them. I am in control of my reactions, able to express to others what is off and preserve the relationships I care about.

I can now move from anger to peace, consciously. And so can you.

 

It took me several trainings and a few years to get where I am. I now want to support people who have a hard time dealing with anger find their durable peace, accelerating their path using my own experience as well as my trainings.

This journey has brought me a lot, not only at work but also in my family and personal life. I can now fully enjoy living with my two teenagers and stay calm when I find the fridge empty!
