Recognizing Signs of Anger Management Problems

Do you often find yourself angry or acting out violently to situations that maybe don't warrant such a huge emotional outburst? While it’s important that anger doesn’t get bottled up, maintaining control over your anger is crucial to keeping your cool and ensures that outward expressions of anger doesn’t negatively impact your relationships.

Anger is an entirely natural emotion, but how you deal with these feelings when you've been mistreated or wronged is important. When your anger turns to violence and causes harm to yourself or others, your anger management difficulties can lead to broken relations, loss of a job, or legal troubles.

Be on the lookout for the following behavior patterns attributed to anger management difficulties:
·         Ignoring people or refusing to speak to them
·         Problems with expressing emotions in a calm and healthy way
·         Struggle to compromise or come to an agreement without getting angry
·         Outward aggression including shouting, swearing, or being physically violent
·         Becoming especially angry or violent when consuming alcohol
·         Substance abuse or addiction
