Learning how to control anger is a very important part of stress relief.
Do you need to know how to manage anger or how to deal with anger?
Does someone you know have anger management problems?
I have an exciting idea to share with you…
Do you know that you can control your anger by controlling your thoughts?
In fact, faulty thinking is a main cause of anger.
If you have a problem with anger, it can be very distressing for you and for these around you. I want to give you a different way of looking at your anger. And an alternative way how to control anger.
What is Anger
Anger is a very normal response to perceived pain hurt and injustice. The word ‘perceived’ is important because anger is a direct result of the way you view the world….
Anger is not caused by other people…
It is, like any other emotion, an automatic response to how you view a situation or an event that you classify as distressing.
Have you ever caught yourself saying something like:
- ‘He made me so angry.’
- ‘Every time she says that it sends me crazy.’
- ‘I was having a good day until that stupid driver cut in front of me and made me furious. He ruined my day.’
All of the above are misconceptions!
Cause of Anger
Nobody ‘makes’ you angry.
There are two schools of thought on anger
- One believes that there is a difference between healthy (appropriate) anger and unhealthy (inappropriate) anger. This school says that it is sometimes appropriate to let out your anger and that suppressing it is unhealthy.
- The second school of thought, supported by recent research, believes that all anger is harmful and unhealthy and it makes no differences whether you suppress it or not or whether you know how to control anger or how to manage anger. According to this way of thinking, expressing anger can cause negative physiological effects. Links have been found between arthritis and anger. It has also been shown that if you are a hostile, competitive ‘type A’ personality, you are more likely to suffer heart problems than others. Conversely, people who suppress anger when they have been hurt can set up depressive thinking patterns.
What other options are there?
- A third way of thinking about anger is not to feel it in the first place. This way how to control anger involves learning a new way of thinking about the situation that makes you feel angry…
In other words, a healthy way how to deal with anger is to change your thinking, change your perception and take the sting out of the anger trigger…
