Having Issues Managing Anger? We Can Help
Anger is a basic human emotion we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives. It’s usually triggered when we’ve been hurt emotionally, and it can be a pretty unpleasant, uncomfortable feeling to deal with. If we feel we’ve been mistreated, misunderstood, wrongfully accused, or that our long-standing beliefs are being challenged, we may succumb to feelings of anger.
Our therapists here at Therapy Solutions in Dickinson, Killdeer, and Richardton, ND work with clients to help identify sources and triggers for your anger, as well as how to gain control of this negative emotion. If you have been holding on to anger toward a family member, co-worker, supervisor, or a lifelong grudge against someone, it may be time to start the healing process and let go once and for all.
What Causes Anger?
Several things can cause a person to get overly upset; the list goes on and on! Anger is a normal emotion to feel and nothing to be ashamed of, but it’s important to see a professional when your emotions get out of hand, as it can be a sign of an underlying condition.
Information obtained from Priory Group states “Feelings of anger or violent acting out can be related to many different underlying difficulties including depression, anxiety, addictions and other mental health problems. Many individuals can have underlying difficulties with severe low self-esteem, as well as problems with mistrust. Some people may also have a history of past physical, sexual or emotional abuse. There may be many interlocking features that have led someone to develop anger management difficulties.”
