Anger Is Normal - It's All in How You Deal With It

Description

Anger is a normal and necessary emotion, but we must manage how we harness our anger.

Anger is a normal emotion. We experience it when we sense unfairness or injustice. Sometimes we experience it when we feel frustrated, deprived, or when we pass judgment on a situation as being worthy of an angry reaction.

Sadly, some of us use anger as a tool to manipulate or intimidate another person into giving up or to control the discussion. Some of us protest with anger when we are not getting our way.

Anger generally creates anger or withdrawal in the other party. What starts out to be a legitimate attempt to communicate or resolve a difficult problem becomes worse. Anger often prevents clear thinking and interferes with goodwill.

What is anger’s purpose?

Anger is like pain. It is a warning. Pain tells us that something is wrong in our body and that we need to attend to it and take corrective action. People who ignore chronic pain without understanding its source take a chance that the cause of the pain will become aggravated by neglect.
