Everyone gets angry from time to time and it is a normal human emotion. However, if anger gets out of control, it may cause potential damages to an individual’s daily activities, important relationships in his/her life, and overall well-being. Others around him/her may also be negatively affected. Thus, proper anger management techniques are crucial to maintaining healthy relationships with all around you.
When should you seek professional help for anger management issues? Some questions that you may ask yourself include:
- Do I tend to flare up or lose my cool easily?
- Am I easily irritable at anything?
- Is my anger issue affecting my relationships with the people around me and/or having negative impacts in various areas of my life?
- Do I feel sad and/or guilty after expressing my anger?
- Is it difficult to pacify myself after my anger subsides?
- Do I often have a desire to lash out verbally and/or physically?
If you answered ‘yes’ to most of the questions above, you might wish to talk to our counsellors to understand where your anger stems from and healthier ways to cope with it before it spirals out of control.
