In order to control or manage anger, we must first understand it. The more we know about our anger, the easier it is to manage it. We can then stop paying the cost of not knowing or understanding anger management. Part of understanding is having access to information. The information needs to be presented clearly and be credible, so the information you are about to get about "Anger" is for real.
When is Anger a Problem?
When it is too frequent. When daily situations and minor events are making you angry, it's probably happening too often.
When it is too intense. It severely reduces your ability to think clearly and leads to impulsive acts that you later regret.
When it lasts too long. When you make too much of something and relive it over and over in your mind, anger interferes with your work and enjoyment of life.
When it leads to aggression. Anger makes it easier to say or do something that hurts someone when you are at least likely to think through the consequences of your behavior.
