Learning To Deal With Anger
Posted on: Wednesday, November 5th, 2014
Do you find yourself getting uncontrollably angry on a frequent basis? Do you often make regrettable, hurtful statements? Are you worried that your anger is getting the best of you? Do you fear verbal and physical abuse may be taking control of your relationship?
Debilitating anger causes shame and self-hate in those that fall victim to it, and it is important to remember that while your anger is a part of you now, it does not have to be a part of who you are permanently.
At our center, we believe people can change for the better.
Why People Can’t Manage Their Anger
Believe it or not, your anger does not have to control you.
This statement seems false and almost impossible to believe. The reason is that you have been managing your anger on your own. With help, you can get to the root of your anger issues quite easily and find a way to resolve them.
It is possible to mend relationships and repair your career if you are failing because of it.
Here are our top 3 benefits of learning to deal with anger.
1. Repairing Your Relationships
When you deal with unmanageable anger on a frequent basis, all of your relationships suffer. Your spouse, your children, your family members and coworkers are all in jeopardy. Anger can create a feeling of isolation and despair, especially after an outburst.
If you are concerned that you will become verbally or physically abusive, you have no choice but to find a way to control your anger.
We want to help you mend your relationships and get them back to a healthy place.
Techniques and counseling exist for anger management, and they can help you communicate with others in a healthy and positive way.
There are ways diffuse your anger and manage it properly. You will learn to communicate your frustrations appropriately and responsibly, without a barrage of attacks.
2. Learning To Deal With Anger Leads To Overall Emotional Stability
Your anger issues are caused by external factors, and you can learn to let go of that aspect of your life. You do not need to hang on to these feelings, nor feel shame in your behavior. Not only will you get to the bottom of why you have uncontrollable anger, but you will work through a process to recognize its source before it takes over. In attaining this ability, it becomes easier to control other emotions such as fear, anxiety, etc. You will feel empowered and in control.
3. Be More Successful In Your Endeavors
You have probably noticed that your anger has held you back in life when it comes to relationships and opportunities. Frustrations common to work and schooling may trigger your anger and keep you from progressing. Addressing your anger issues allows you to learn to control yourself better and become more successful and satisfied with your life.
The best example I can give of how this course is helping me is in my relationship with my girlfriend. I tend to use and apply concepts that I learned here with her because I see her a lot. Just last night, I experienced a conversation that today’s lesson helped clarify how I should approach the situation. Changing the conversation from an argument to a conversation is a better alternative than what I did before, which just lengthened a simple disagreement.
