Question

I would like more information on how I can stop getting angry all the time. I can "feel" angry for months on end knowing that I shouldn't be. I'm looking for something that lets me know how to stop these angry feelings I have.

Answer

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems - problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can't get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change THEM, but you can learn to control YOUR reactions.
