Anger is a legitimate emotion in response to injury or for self-defense. But if survival defenses are out of conscious control, it is then considered lack of impulse control. Your anger by passes the rational part of your brain and you react instantly without thinking or choosing how to react. In order to interrupt that automatic reaction, you must slow it down. Do that by taking deep breaths until you have calmed down and are able to make a rational decision of how to react.

Anger expressed in raw form, typically is destructive to relationships and hurts reputations. Raw anger can harm others and results in property damage, jail time, loss of children, divorce, or unemployment. In contrast, anger can be presented in honest but thoughtful ways, leading toward problem-solving and closer relationships. Each explosive angry moment is different. Each person vexed with chronic anger requires different tools and interventions. In order for an angry person to become calm, clear, trustworthy or even reliably loving -- deep work with past abuses, injustices may need reworking. Learning verbal skills & impulse control, help too. DrCarolFrancis.com and 310-543-1824.

Daniel Goleman in his book " Emotional Intelligence" says, "The train of angry thoughts that stokes anger is also potentially the key to one of the most powerful ways to defuse anger: undermining the convictions that are fueling anger in the first place. The longer we ruminate about what has made us angry, the more "good reasons" and self-justifications for being angry we can invent. Brooding fuels anger's flames. But seeing things differently douses those flames". Call me and we can talk further about what is making you angry.

If you and your partner are feeling emotionally disconnected, you may find yourself drawn into repeated arguments with each other about seemingly unrelated issues -- such as money, parenting, chores, and sex. Hiding within these disagreements are painful questions: Can I reach you? Do I matter to you? Can I count on you if I need you? Once these deep, hidden questions are calmed, and you both feel safe and loved, you and your partner will find it much easier to resolve other issues.
