Early in life when a child is upset and acts out often their parents tell the child that they must have an anger problem. The same child goes to school acting out and the teacher tells them they must have an anger problem. As the child grows and continues this behavior they are sent to counseling and told they must have an anger problem. The child becomes an adult continues to get in trouble fighting and bullying others saying only that I’ve always had an anger problem.
The “anger problem” becomes an acceptable excuse for the violence way too often. It is easier to accept this rather than look for the real true picture which is that anger is not understood and how it is handled is the problem,NOT THE ANGER!
What is anger? It is a feeling that we all have. What do you think about when you hear ANGER? Nothing very good I’m sure. Rather than looking at anger as a bad thing why not look at it as motivation. What?? Yes motivation, anger is just a feeling to let us know something is wrong and something needs to change. Let the anger motivate you to find out what is wrong and what needs to change. Use anger to help YOU not HURT OTHERS.
Anger is not the problem,how you deal with it is the problem.
