Making the distinction between situations that require anger for protection and annoyances that simply require a deep breath is a skill. It can be learned, and it can save families, health and careers.
Research has found that, typically, people who are easily angered come from families that are disruptive, chaotic, and not skilled at emotional communications.
Signs of the need for anger management:
- Cussing or swearing a lot, using high drama descriptions
- Feeling frustrated a lot
- Constantly putting others down
- Criticizing everything
- A low ability to put one
- self in another person's feelings
- Chronically irritable or grumpy
- Seeing the dark side of things more often than the bright side
- Often making cynical comments
- Often thinking or saying, "That's horrible."
- Often thinking or saying, "Everything's ruined."
- Often thinking or saying, "That g**d** boss/machine/person."
- Often reacting with high drama
- Often using "always" or "never" about yourself or others
- Often demanding and expecting (instead of asking and waiting) to get something from someone- or get something done by someone
- Often responding to hurts with anger instead of responding with hurt
Seek support through others, therapist, clergy - someone to talk to.
