Chapter 2:Understanding Why You Have Anger Issues
We all get angry. However, you get angry only for certain things or in certain situations. For example, you might get angry if someone insults you or tries to hurt you. But this anger is sometimes justified because of the other person’s behaviour. Also, you might get angry because you are hungry or in a bad mood on a particular day. If you are not feeling well, then it might make you less patient.
Also, you might get angry with yourself if you feel that you have made a mistake or forgotten something. For example, you get to the car and then realise that you forget the keys in the house.
A simple way to know that you have anger issues is to
- Check if you get angry a lot – do you get angrier than most people around you?
- Do you get angry for even small things – Do little things that do not make others angry, bother you a lot? Do they make you lose your temper?
- Can you not control your anger – When you get angry, do you lose control of yourself? Do you say or do things that are wrong and harmful to others?
- Take a long time to calm down – Does it take a long time for you to calm yourself?
- Regret afterward – After a while, once you calm down, do you feel guilty for what you have done?
