Take back control over anger
Anger is a normal human response. Everyone has experienced saying or doing something when they are angry, that later causes them regret. However, for some people, anger can take control and these moments become all too familiar.
It takes inner strength to ask for help and admit that you have a problem with anger.
What is anger?
Anger is one of many human emotions that can be appropriate or inappropriate. Primary anger is the term used for anger that is a response to an immediate threat, either physical or emotional. This anger is a healthy and normal feeling. As long as it is released appropriately, primary anger is usually not a problem.
However there is another type of anger that can cause huge pain and devastation in your life. This is secondary anger, an emotion that begins to control the person and causes destruction – both physical and emotional. This type of anger is often constant and excessive, appearing to be a reaction to nothing.
When anger takes the wheel
For many people anger is simply a passing feeling, a sarcastic remark to a friend when someone cuts in the line in front of you, or even a slammed door during an argument. The anger, once released, can be dealt with and moved past. However when you are struggling with anger management this anger may not go away, or it may result in unsafe, hurtful and even illegal actions.
You can get back in the driver’s seat.
