Updated:—-Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation, ——- Anger!!!!!

Specific parts of you personality may be angry and are usually easily evoked.  because these parts are dissociated, anger remains an emotion that is not integrated for you as a whole person.  Even though individuals with dissociative disorder are responsible for their behavior, just like everyone else, regardless of which part may be acting, they may feel little control of these raging parts of themselves.

Some dissociative parts may avoid or even be phobic of anger.  They may influence you as a whole person to avoid conflict with others at any cost or to avoid setting healthy boundaries out of fear of someone else’s anger; or they may urge you to withdraw from others almost completely.

Parts of you are phobic of anger and generally terrified and ashamed of angry dissociative parts.  There is often tremendous conflict between anger-avoidant  and anger-fixated parts of an individual.  Thus, an internal and perpetual cycle of rage-shame-fear creates inner chaos and pain.

You as a whole person are thus unable to reconcile conflicts about anger and learn to tolerate and express anger in healthy ways.  Inner turmoil and dissociation are maintained.”

  1. Anger was stuck for me because I was not allowed to express desires or wants my anger would have gotten me hurt if I expressed it.

    I was always afraid of my anger and how out of control and emotional it felt.

    Also some may express the same emotion no matter the input received. We can change all this with daily work.
