Session 2: Rage Robot
This session introduces the Rage Robot, which represents a
common view that anger is caused by my "buttons" being pushed by the actions of others. When
I adopt this view, I see my freedom as very limited, because I don't have control over what others
do. In contrast to this view is the idea that anger is a choice, something that I can build
or not build in response to what others do.
It is important that you
continue to fill out the anger record on a daily basis. If you are listening to
the sessions but not keeping a daily anger record, that is like showing up at the gym to watch
others work out. If I just watch others lift weights, I may learn something about how other
people run their exercise programs. But I don't get
stronger, unless I get myself on the
weights and machines. Go back and read the section entitled Mad Science for specific
tips on filling out the anger record, if you have not done so. Keep it up--every day!
