What is Anger? 

 

Anger is a Universal emotion that all humans have and express in one way or another. Some of us are explosive when expressing our anger and some of us "stuff" our anger, and convince ourselves that we don't have anger, that we are not an angry person because somewhere along the way in our families, our religious upbringing or society as a whole has ingrained in us that to be angry is bad and we are therefore bad people if we are angry. For these people anger gets buried and, because our emotions have to be expressed in some way, it come out in other, more "disguised" ways which we talk about later, under "Different Kinds of Anger".

 

Where does Anger come from?

 

This following explanation of anger was delivered by Tom Altaffer of the Ask and Receive method::

 

"People who feel anger or have a lot of anger or occasionally have angry, impulsive responses, often feel that they have a problem with emotional control or that they are too sensitive emotionally. What I’ve found, after seeing hundreds of clients with anger issues, is that the problem is almost never because of someone being too emotional or that the person has no emotional control. Generally, it’s quite the reverse.

 

The individual who experiences angry, emotional outbursts is generally trying to control these outbursts most of the time. The issue that they have in their life is not that they are too angry, too emotional but they are not emotional enough. The result of not being emotional enough is that they don’t set limits (boundaries) that need to be set or they don’t express themselves in effective ways prior to becoming angry.

 

Very often there is also the presence of trauma and beliefs that get in the way of their control and they find themselves collapsing back into the emotional responses of childhood or from some other traumatic or abusive learning in their past.

 

This past traumatic learning taught you how to deal with or not deal with anger directly from your experiences or experiences that derived from your environment. In other words, how your parents behaved and/or how people in your environment behaved as ways of understanding the world around you. Very often, anger issues go back to very early childhood learning where there was an over-focus on emotional control."

Because it is a part of being human to have anger as one of our common, Universal emotions, it is important to not only acknowledge that we have anger, but, also to figure out how to best express so we can be heard. Just because we suppress our anger and become more passive in the world doesn't mean we are not angry people. Those who suppress their anger are just "stuffing" it and not getting their needs fully met.  

Do you want to manage your anger

for the rest of your life or do you
want to let go of your excess anger?

Release your "extra-charge"
Once and for All!!!

The current established methods of treatment for anger and rage focus on managing one's anger, be it by medication or various Anger Management programs. I have to give credit where credit is due so I have to say that society has been doing the best they could with what it knew at the time. And, it must be said that someof these techniques can be very useful depending on the client using the techniques.

However, times are always changing, and now someone who has a problem with his/her anger or rage has some real powerful methods of treatment where they can let go of their excess anger and rage. Once and for All!!!!

So, how do I know that these methods take your excess anger away Once and for All? Because I used to be a "rageaholic". As a result of the trauma from my childhood, I didn't like myself very much. As a matter of fact, I hated myself because of those things that had been reflected back to me when I was younger. That trauma was the reason why I projected my anger at myself out onto the world. I was in talk therapy for ten out of fifteen years of my early adult life. Even though I did get some things out of this experience, I walked out of talk therapy with as much rage and as much anxiety as I did when I walked into therapy. Talk therapy does not release rage and high anxiety, it just helps to manage it and relieve it at times.
