Cruelty comes from those who are the most insecure, who are not yet comfortable in their own skin, have not developed a strong sense of self-worth and who have yet to make major shifts in their lives to access inner peace and happiness.

I escaped the cage and found freedom from the wood pellets and stale feeder food. Maybe certain people tried to look for me; maybe they didn't. I didn't care. I was a hamster with a plan.

Judith Orloff MD

As a psychiatrist I teach my patients to address passive aggressive behavior directly as the person may not be aware of the impact on you since they are short on empathy.

John Fitzgerald Gates, Ph.D. | Posted 04.03.2015 | Black Voices
John Fitzgerald Gates, Ph.D.

As an African American, I have empathy for angry white men because I recognize that they are experiencing the pain African Americans have long borne -- of being bystanders to the shaping of their identities and possibilities in an uncertain world.

Angry Words at Our Passover Seder

Rabbi Laura Geller

Shfokh hamatkha reminds me to pay attention to the hate that exists in the world, against us, and against others, but because it is said as we open the door for Elijah, it reminds me not to let the fear that hate evokes cloud our vision of what we are called to do to redeem the world.

Hunter Clarke-Fields

My thoughts told me I was a terrible mother for my anger. I would spiral deeper into a hole. I couldn't see the light. I was fighting myself. I couldn't handle this ugly part of me. I had to change. But anger gets stronger when we fight with it, when we reject it.

Are You Selfish or Self-Responsible?

Margaret Paul, Ph.D. | Posted 03.17.2015 | Healthy Living

Giving yourself up to avoid being called selfish is not self-responsible - it is manipulative and dishonest. When you give yourself up to avoid criticism, you are trying to control how another feels about you.

Carole Ganim

I wonder if Christians and/or we good people have love and kindness, generosity and goodness equal in passion to hatred and anger. The terrorist or murderer believes that any deed is justified in the name of the cause or the god s/he worships. There is no ambiguity.

I hated the anger I felt towards him, hated the way I treated him in his moments of weakness.

Dr. Margaret Rutherford

Valentine's Day is approaching so I thought it appropriate to tell the story I often do in therapy to help describe a basic difference between the genders. It's actually not simply a difference. More like a lack of understanding.
