Let go of anger: Loving Kindness meditation

This is not the sort of thing I’d usually do on my own, but we did it in my DBT group and I found it incredibly helpful. This helped me finally put to bed anger I had toward specific individuals who had hurt me in the past, and the anger hasn’t come back weeks later. Give this a try especially if it feels a little silly to you. If starting with yourself is too difficult, start with someone you already love. Gradually work your way up, radiating loving kindness.

  1. I really think this stuff helped me a few years ago, when I was doing it a lot along with breathing exercises. I’d also do it in public to reduce feelings of hostility. Unfortunately, I also included “May I feel strong.” As someone high in narcissism, that might not have been ideal. LOL!

    After reading this post, I have started doing it again with the phrases you show here, and once again, it really does seem to help. Thank you!
