In control of your anger – not the other way around
Anger is generally a normal, healthy human response. Feeling and releasing anger in an appropriate way can be necessary, especially when defending yourself against an emotional or physical attack. Everyone has experienced anger, and later regretted their actions whilst angry. Anger becomes a problem for some individuals when it is ongoing, regular and overriding.
To take back control takes time and strength of mind – with help, it is possible.
What is anger?
Anger is a natural human emotion, felt at varying levels of intensity in various situations. Primary anger is a response to a situation at hand, and once discharged the anger can be let go.
Secondary anger is not so easy to get rid of. This type of anger can be highly destructive, especially because it is often ongoing and unrelenting. Secondary anger may also be anger that is excessive for a situation.
When are you ruled by anger?
A natural and healthy response of anger is transitory in nature. It’s an instinctive response to a situation that is then released. Anger becomes a problem if you cannot let it go. You may feel unaccountably angry over a small irritation, or over nothing at all. You may feel that you are unable to control your feelings of rage, and feel concerned that you might lose your temper at a loved one, boss or even a stranger.
