It is natural for us to feel anger when we are treated unfairly. Some individuals may feel that their anger is overwhelming and he/she cannot contain it. In society we frequently hear phrases such as, “He made me mad,” or “I lost my temper.” These are false concepts that lead to suffering for individuals and their families. We always have a choice in how we react to the stressors in our life. As a therapist, I teach clients constructive ways of identifying their needs and expressing them assertively and respectfully. Individuals then experience an increased sense of control in their life and higher self-esteem.
