GAMES FOR ANGRY COUPLES – GAME 3: HOW DO I HATE THEE? (PART 3)
Tuesday, April 7, 2009 | 5:19 am
After they have completed this part of the exercise, they take turns saying the same thing to themselves. “How do I hate myself? Let me count the ways.” The wife might say, “I hate myself because I’m always so angry and bent out of shape. I hate myself because I’m so oversensitive. I hate myself for rejecting you sexually all the time.” And the husband might say, “I hate myself because I can’t get an erection. I hate myself because I feel like a failure. I hate myself for being so passive.”
The game allows each not only to verbalize the anger that they’ve been acting out, but also to get in touch with and verbalize the anger at themselves of which they are usually less aware. Having them do the exercise while in the act of love-making serves to bring out the erotic elements that attach to the anger, and the sexual atmosphere softens the anger and helps them work through it.
