Anger is a necessary, unavoidable emotion. However, your reaction to angry feelings is crucial. Imagine: All week, you’ve been looking forward to watching your favorite college basketball team crush their biggest rival. Your team is projected to win, and you have no doubts they’ll make you proud. But then the game finally comes around, and your team is sucking. They’re missing every shot and they just aren’t gelling as the team you know and love. As the final buzzer sounds, you sink into the couch, angry and defeated.
You have a few options when it comes to how you react to and express your anger. You could scream, throw some pillows around, and pick a fight with your significant other who’s sitting in the other room. Or, you could lay your head back, close your eyes, and take a deep breath: “It sucks that my team lost, but it’s okay. In the grand scheme of things, it’s unimportant.” Obviously, the ideal reaction is the latter. However, controlling your anger in this way is easier said than done for a lot of people. Fortunately, there are anger experts who can help you adapt techniques for better controlling and managing your angry outbursts.
