WHEEL OF RAGE DENIAL ANGER FURY BILE IRRITATION RESENTMENT HATRED Time once again for FEELINGS with your host Dr. Warren Fuzzy! DR: Greetings, inner children! Friends, as you know, my mission is to help people! And here's someone who really needs help!! Mrs. Godfrey! Open up to me, Mrs. Godfrey! Why do you look so angry all the time? GODFREY: Because I am angry, you Brillo-headed nimrod! DR: And what do you think is at the root of this anger? GODFREY: Hey, if you looked like me, wouldn't you be ticked off? DR: Mrs. Godfrey, all this bitterness is causing a profound soul sickness in your inner spirit! We must heal it! GODFREY: But how? DR: By expressing the anger! If you release your rage at regular intervals on a daily basis it won't build up inside! GODFREY: So all I need to do is find someone to use as the target of my anger? DR: Exactly! Let the healing begin.
