“Anyone can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person at the right time, and for the right purpose and in the right way …that is not easy.” – Aristotle
Anger is healthy and natural. What is not healthy is when the anger turns into uncontrollable rage.
Feeling angry is OK. It is how we respond to and express that anger that can cause problems.
Expressing anger in an aggressive or violent way is unacceptable. Rather than trying to suppress the anger, we need to learn how to manage it in a way that acknowledges the feeling while not harming anyone else.
- Do you sometimes have trouble controlling your temper?
- Have you ever become angry and regretted it later?
- Have you ever lost control of your anger to the point where you became violent or abusive?
- Has anyone ever commented on your anger?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions and would like to change the way you handle your anger, then one of MSS’s Managing Anger groups may be a solution for you.
MSS runs a group program called Managing Anger for Men and Women and is available for people aged 16 years or older free of charge.
