Have you ever had one of those moments where somebody said something and you feel yourself instantly in anger?
Your ears get hot – maybe your ears ring – you feel your face flush – your heart rate elevates – stomach turns… there are all kinds of indicators.
We all know what anger is and we’ve all experienced it – whether it was a quick annoyance or full-blown rage.
Anger is a normal, often healthy, human emotion.
Feeling angry can be positive when it motivates you to make positive changes, stand up for yourself, or get out of unhealthy situations.
But when it gets out of control anger can also motivate unhealthy behaviors like abuse – whether it’s verbal, emotional, or physical — isolation, food issues, depression, and self-harm – drinking too much alcohol or taking drugs might be ways of coping with anger issues…
…and you know those will just make you feel worse and likely create bigger problems.
And all of those behaviors lead to problems at work, in your personal relationships, and have negative effects on your overall quality of your life.
You could be angry at a specific person (such as a coworker or supervisor) or event (a traffic jam, a canceled flight), or your anger could be caused by worrying about your personal problems.
If you find yourself in some of these unhealthy behaviors, it’s a good sign that it’s time to get some support.
So get your earbuds ready, my friend, we’re diving into solutions.
