Anger is a normal emotion, but it can become uncontrollable and create problems for you, your family and y
our personal relationships. Anger can stop you thinking clearly, make you act impulsively, or may make you aggressive and violent towards others.
If you find it difficult to talk about how you feel, you may suppress your anger or turn it inwards. This can lead to problems such as:
eating disorders self harm drugs alcohol addiction
Therapy can help you find the cause of your anger and provide ways to control and change your behaviour.

Anger for me comes mostly from frustration or from not being able to get to grips with a situation. I sometimes still get angry at those in my inner circle if they keep making the same mistakes in life and I have to remind myself that it is “their” life to make those mistakes and they will make the positive changes they need to make when and if they want to and not before they are ready, “You can take a horse to water but you can’t make it drink” springs to mind.
Outside influences can no longer make me angry, although at times it feels like some people’s purpose in life is to try and make me angry however they do not succeed. Although anger is a natural feeling, an emotion, that does not mean others have that power over you, unless you give them that power.
This does not mean you will never feel anger but it does mean that you can control your anger, just like boxer’s control it between rounds you can control yours in a way that suits you and channel it in a positive way.
