Are you surprised to learn that Anger is a completely normal healthy human emotion that we all experience from time to time? It’s also a very powerful emotion – and it has a purpose. If you find yourself ‘losing it’ when you become angry it doesn’t necessarily mean you have an anger management problem. If it’s happening regularly there could be an underlying issue that needs to be explored.
One of the functions of Anger is to alert us to situations that are not quite right for us and need our attention. Everyday life issues can trigger our Anger. The car not starting; kids not doing as they’re told; arguing with a loved one; job-hunting, inconsiderate drivers or being hit with an over-payment – any of these events may leave us feeling angry.
