Identify how your feelings affect your thinking. Rage and fear can move you to take action against an unacceptable set of circumstances, and that's good. But let on the loose, and those feelings can cause major damage to you and those you care about.
By learning to acknowledge your feelings, and even embrace them, you begin to build awareness of them. Take time to see how those feelings change and how this influences your actions.
Once you understand how emotions affect you and your thought process, you can begin learning how others' emotions affect them. As you gain ability to see things from their perspective, you'll also gain ability to communicate in a way they understand - improving your ability to navigate life and relationships more smoothly.
