Manage anger or heal it?
Take a look at the news or social media and it often seems as if the world is full of angry people. Many people search for ways to manage their anger, and there are plenty of anger management methods to choose from. But is managing anger enough? Or can we actually overcome it?
A few years ago, I came across an article that explained that we react with anger when something happens that conflicts with our concept of how things should be or how people should act. That was quite an eye-opener for me. I realized that whether I was just mildly irritated or very angry, it was really because things weren’t going quite how I thought they should. With that realization, I began to see that anger is not forced upon us by some outward circumstance but is ultimately the result of how we think about ourselves and others.
