For so long I was afraid of anger and was easily triggered when I felt someone was "yelling" at me or got upset. Anger is a natural, instinctive response to threats.
We might experience anger if we feel:
• invalidated or unfairly treated
And it can sometimes be useful:
• help us identify problems or things that are hurting us
• motivate us to create change, achieve our goals and move on
• help us stay safe and defend ourselves in dangerous situations by giving us a burst of energy as part of our fight or flight system
However, anger becomes a problem when we have trouble controlling it, causing us to say or do things we later regret.
You may have anger issues if:
• you feel angry often
• your anger is impacting your relationships
• your anger is hurting others
• your anger causes you to say or do things you regret
• you’re verbally or physically abusive
• your reaction is exaggerated to the situation
• you're passive aggressive
Lately, I've been helping my RESET 1-1 coaching clients identify what the core issue is around their anger. We then develop strategies to keep those triggers from tipping them over the edge.
