Anger is a challenging emotion. If used appropriately, anger helps set limits and correct problems in our lives. If expressed unchecked, it can do severe damage to people we love, things we love, and even ourselves. Learning to control and use anger appropriately is a skill, and one that can be learned by anyone who really wants to work hard.
Getting angry is a choice. One you may have difficulty controlling. Managing anger focuses on preventing unnecessary anger, containing anger once it arises, and learning to effectively solve the problems that anger is indicating are occurring in your life. You must address your feelings, your actions, your thinking, and your values in order to use anger effectively to improve your life, rather than destroy it.
