Even what we tend to think of as minor outbursts of anger can be incredibly destructive to relationships (couples, parents-children, among friends, in the work place, even road rage). Anger is generally a secondary emotion, a response to underlying hurt and fear. Anger itself is not bad; it is how we express it than can be very harmful. Jerry knows from personal experience that you can learn how to identify the underlying sources of anger and deal with them in such a way that anger can actually become a friend and can be used for the good of our relationships.

I have never met a person who doesn't have some reason to be angry. But, I have also seen much displaced anger, rage disproportunate to the situation at hand and relationships destroyed due to anger. If your anger is bothering you and getting between you and the people you love, call me today. I have been able to help many people see where their anger may originate and better navigate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors. There is hope for those who call.

Anger arises from one's inability to express their true self to their loved ones and their environment. Over a period of time, one feels confined and restricted. This can range from rage to a low grade anger that is consistent from day to day. Learning how to speak one's truth respectfully, and the utilization of assertiveness and boundaries can reduce the buildup of anger over a period of time.

Pain is often what lies buried underneath anger. Anger can be a very effective defense against incurring any further pain or feeling the pain that is already there. Anger can also be a catalyst, helping to motivate us to make a change in our lives. However, when we hold onto anger after its usefulness has expired, (it is no longer constructive)or we are not in control of our anger and as a result we act out in destructive ways, anger is suddenly a huge liability. When we act destructively, and not constructively we are caught in a way of life that does not allow for further growth. Learning new coping skills to help manage anger is an act of courage and the first step toward healing.

Anger is good! This may seem contrary to what you've always believed about anger. You've probably spent a lot of time and energy trying to get rid of it. That would be a big mistake. Did you know that God was angry at times? If God was angry, how could it be wrong to feel anger? I propose the issue is not in the emotion itself, but in how we express it. You'll benefit from counseling for anger issues by learning healthy ways to use your anger, becoming more emotionally insightful, and developing skills to become connected deeper relationally.
