Have you ever been faced with a moment where you felt something rising within you, but you’ve been unable to express what it is? Have you often told yourself, “If my family would understand, this would be so much better!” Chances are, you have experienced anger. More than likely, you have been experiencing anger for much longer than you think. Anger is a common reaction to normal issues that can arise within a relationship. Anger is also a normal reaction to many stressors in life such as denied promotion, traffic, children, or family. Basically, anger is a result of feeling out of control or threatened. Good news, anger management can help you understand more clearly. Anger is an emotional reaction to situations that we do not often know how to deal with. In my own journey, I have experienced anger as the inability to express myself. This comes as telling myself I am wrong or a failure or not a good father in most cases. Most of us have experienced emotions, yet this is also a foreign concept. Usually anger is an overwhelming sense or a body felt sense that we do not understand.
