Anger is a Healthy Emotion

Anger is a Healthy Emotion
By: Diane Lang

It’s okay to feel anger. It’s normal and healthy . Everyone feels anger, sometimes, even daily.
Anger is a powerful emotion that can help you to express yourself either in an unhealthy manner or in a positive way.
If you use anger as a red flag that something is wrong and make changes, it can be very helpful.
The key is to know if the anger you are feeling is productive and helps you improve your situation or unproductive anger like road rage.
If it’s unproductive, learn the triggers and ways to distract yourself.
What self soothes you? music, calling a friend, meditative breathing, remembering a good memory, etc.
There are always good and bad things going on in the world – it’s what you choose to focus on.

Remember, that anger is a secondary emotion. That means there is something underneath your anger like fear or sadness.
If we don’t deal with the fear, the anger will remain.
Anger is easier to feel, it’s less uncomfortable and vulnerable.
We feel more in control with anger.
Next time you are feeling anger, look beneath the anger.
What is truly going on? Are you really fearful and anxious? or sad ? hurt?
When we know our true emotions under the anger, we can deal directly with the root of the problem.
