Sometimes, we have days that seem to be filled with nothing but opportunities to get angry. Strong emotions are simply our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. It is never wrong to experience anger. However, it is essential that we manage our anger effectively. Anger becomes a problem when we ‘magnify’ a situation and make it bigger than it is, or when our anger occurs too often. Life is about many stressors; finances, parenting, work, health problems, extended family issues. When our burden becomes too great, anger spills out, and at times we hurt those close to us.
If you are struggling with managing your anger, you do not need to do this alone. A trained and skilled counsellor can help. He or she will be able to help you identify what is driving your anger, help you develop a healthy response to what you are feeling, and learn new skills.
