Could you do with some anger management know-how?
Are your own angry emotional reactions causing you problems?
Life, some famous person once said, is just one darn thing after another. From our earliest days (just take a proper look at toddlers), our plans and wishes get frustrated. Things don’t work out how we expect. People don’t do what they’re supposed to do. We don’t get what we want. It’s no wonder we get emotional, and feel like breaking things, shouting, and even hitting people.
As we grow from toddlers to adults, we learn that there is a distinction between the unalterable laws of physics which govern why the natural world doesn’t bend to our wishes and the behavior of the people around us. People could give us what we expect or want or ask for, if they wanted. We know this. And so we can get even more frustrated when they don’t.
It feels so wrong!
Of course, sometimes it is ’wrong’ in the objective sense. But even when it is merely a matter of not getting our own way, it feels just as ’wrong’ to us. This powerful feeling of being ’wronged’ is anger. It is a useful, energizing emotion in its place. It drives us into action against perceived threats.
The trouble is, anger is a primitive mechanism, and its simple primitive structure has not yet caught up with the complexities of modern life, where it isn’t a good idea to treat your incompetent co-worker, say, as if they were a saber-toothed tiger threatening your very existence.
What happens when we get angry
The chemical changes that anger triggers in our bodies to get us to focus on and act very directly on a source of threat, without paying attention to any distracting surrounding circumstances, lead us to lose our rational perspective. We become blind to the subtleties of situations, totally convinced that we are ’right’, and ready to bulldoze over others, no matter what the objective circumstances are.
That’s not great for our relationships with other people, at home or at work.
What’s more, if we are in the habit of getting angry when things don’t go as we expect, research shows that our health will suffer.
But how do you get in control of this primitive force and use it more wisely and appropriately?
