Use AHEN to Better Understand Anger
I came across something today that I thought was really helpful.
I once read something that said if you wanted to trace anger back to its source, just use the AHEN acronym.
- When you see Anger (the “A”) it is usually covering a Hurt (the “H”)
- If you peek under that Hurt, you’ll see you had an Expectation (the “E”)
- And if you look under that expectation, you’ll find a Need (the “N”)
