Do you fume when your child talks back? When someone cuts you off in traffic, is your natural reaction to curse?
Anger is a normal emotion; it is not necessarily good or bad. In the right situation, anger can be a productive response to remedy an injustice. Nevertheless, it is important to learn to manage your anger. When you frequently lose control of your anger, you will end up hurting yourself and those around you.
If you find yourself constantly reacting in anger, you may benefit from anger management counseling.
What happens when you get angry
Anger can be a natural response to a challenging situation, but how you respond to your anger is up to you. You may have unsuccessfully attempted to vent, calm down, or keep your anger inside. You may even be aware of how your anger prevents you from succeeding at work or with relationships. Anger management counseling can help you respond positively and control the way you react to infuriating situations.
