The Heavy Cost of Anger: A Challenge & Social Experiment

Human beings get angry for various reasons, as a way of expressing and relieving emotion. One of the most common forms of anger is frustration. Anger, in and of its self, can be a normal, healthy emotion. In fact, everyone gets angry from time to time, most especially when that anger is frustration based. However, when the amount of frustration in a person life becomes so high that they are angry more often than not, or the anger is being expressed in unhealthy ways that are interfering in your quality of life, then it maybe time to consider getting help.

As it is now the dawn of 2012, I would like to issue a challenge; a social experiment if you will, and ask that you look back over the past year at how many times you, or a loved one, became angry, who was involved, and how you/they expressed the anger. Did you or a loved one feel better or worse after becoming angry? Was anyone hurt emotionally, physically, etc? Did you/they discover that the number of times/days they were angry was equal to, or greater than, the amount of time spent not being angry? Has the anger begun to interfer with daily living? Has your/their anger gotten in the way of things that used to be pleasureable? If it is a loved one, have you noticed you are now avoiding spending time with them? Has the anger become scary? Has the anger become so great that there is now a cost for that anger such as loosing a job or relationship?

 If you have answered yes to any of these questions, I urge you to consider consulting with a professional. Anger of the degree described above is a heavy load to carry, and comes at a high cost to everyone involved. The good news is, anger doesn't have to consume anyones life. At North Valley Anger Management Consultants, we offer individual and group anger management classes that address the heavy cost of anger, through an evidenced based program that is proven to work.
