How To Set Pure Intentions When You’re Mad

Everyone hurts. We have all experienced pain. If unchecked, that hurt and pain seeps into the way you think, feel, and treat people. You say things you don’t mean, or do things you don’t want to do. 

You feel guilty, so you try to justify your actions. Deep down, even though you don’t want to admit it, you can feel it was off. 

Actions come from intentions. But, where do intentions come from? 

Intentions come from the state of your soul. The state of your soul affects everything you do. Negative intentions come from hurt that needs to be healed

Here’s a few ways to keep a check on your intentions:


Pay attention to how you got to that point. Did the intention come from a place of pain or joy? This takes a great amount of honesty. You have to be real with yourself. 


Train yourself to investigate negative feelings. Ask yourself, where did this come from? Keep the focus on yourself. The only person you can control or take responsibility for is yourself. 

What part did you play? Why did you play that part?

And, don’t beat yourself up about a mistake you’ve made. The goal is to become aware not to beat yourself up. Once you’re aware of something, you can change it. You can’t change what you can’t see. 


Lean on the people you know you can trust. Someone who can hold you accountable, and help you to stay on track. Be willing to listen, and slow to become defensive. 

We all need unconditional love, acceptance and support!
