                                                              How to Deal With Anger (The Ultimate Anger Management Guide)

                                                              How to Deal With Anger (The Ultimate Anger Management Guide)

                                                              We all lose our temper from time to time, and expressing anger is actually a healthy thing to do in our relationships with others. Expressing our differences in opinion allows us to have healthy conflict and many times come to an agreement or understanding that works for everyone. However, there are times when anger can become overwhelming or damaging, and during these times, it’s important to learn how to deal with anger.

                                                              Expressing anger inappropriately can be harmful to relationships, both personal and professional. You may express too much anger, too often, or at times that are only going to make things worse, not better. In this article we will look at anger management techniques that will help you better control your emotions.

                                                              Let’s take a deeper look at how to deal with anger.

                                                              Expressing Anger

                                                              Anger is a natural and normal part of almost any relationship. This includes relationships with your significant other, kids, boss, friends, family, etc. Anger provides us with valuable information if we are willing to listen to it. It clues us in to areas where we disagree with others and things that need to be changed or altered.

                                                              Unhealthy Ways to Express Anger

                                                              Here are some common yet unhealthy ways to express anger that you should avoid:

                                                              Being Passive-Aggressive

                                                              This is a term many of us are familiar with. Passive-aggressive behavior happens when someone is angry but uses indirect communication to express their anger.

                                                              Some of the more common passive-aggressive behaviors include the silent treatment, making comments about someone behind their back, being grumpy, moody, or pouting, or simply not doing tasks or assignments that they should.

                                                              This is a passive-aggressive person’s way of showing their anger. It’s not very productive but extremely common.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Poorly-Timed

                                                              Some people get overwhelmed and express anger in a situation where it can’t really do any good.

                                                              An example would be getting angry at one person in front of a crowd of people. All that does is make people uncomfortable and shuts them down. It’s not a healthy way to express anger or disagreement with someone.

                                                              Ongoing Anger

                                                              Being angry all the time is most often a symptom of something else. It’s healthy and normal to express anger when you disagree with someone. However, if someone is angry most of the time and always seems to be expressing their anger to everyone around them, this won’t serve them well.

                                                              Over time, people will start to avoid this person and have as little contact as possible. The reason being is no one likes being around someone who is angry all the time; it’s a no-win situation.

                                                              Healthy Ways to Express Anger

                                                              What about the healthy ways[1] to adapt? When learning how to deal with anger, here are some healthy ways to get you started.

                                                              Being Honest

                                                              Express your anger or disagreement honestly. Be truthful about what it is that is making you angry. Sometimes this will entail walking away and thinking about it for a bit before you respond.

                                                              Don’t say you’re mad at something someone did or said when it’s really something else that upset you.

                                                              Being Direct

                                                              Similar to being honest, being direct is a healthy way to express anger.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              Don’t talk around something that is making you angry. Don’t say that one thing is making you angry when it’s really something else, and don’t stack items on top of each other so you can unload on someone about 10 different things 6 months from now.

                                                              Be direct and upfront about what is making you angry. Ensure you are expressing your anger to the person who upset you or you are angry at, not to someone else. This is very counterproductive.

                                                              Being Timely

                                                              When something makes you angry, it’s much better to express it in a timely manner. Don’t keep it bottled up inside of you, as that’s only going to do more harm than good.

                                                              Think of the marriages that seem to go up in flames out of nowhere when the reality is someone kept quiet for years until they hit their breaking point.

                                                              Expressing anger as it occurs is a much healthier way of using anger to help us guide our relationships in the moment.

                                                              How to Deal With Anger

                                                              If you feel angry, how should you deal with it right at that moment?

                                                              1. Slow Down

                                                              From time to time, I receive an email at work that makes me so angry that steam is probably pouring out of my ears.

                                                              In my less restrained moments, I have been known to fire off a quick response, and that typically has ended about as well as you might imagine.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              When I actually walk away from my computer and go do something else for a while, I am able to calm down and think more rationally. After that happens, I am able to respond in a more appropriate and productive manner. Doing things that helps you learn how to release anger can make an uncomfortable situation more manageable before it gets out of hand.

                                                              2. Focus on the “I”

                                                              Remember that you are the one that’s upset. Don’t accuse people of making you upset because, in the end, it’s your response to what someone did that really triggered your anger. You don’t want to place blame by saying something like “Why don’t you ever put away your dishes?” Say something more like “Having dirty dishes laying on the counter upsets me—can you work with me to come to a solution?”

                                                              When you are accusatory towards someone, all that does is increase the tension. This doesn’t usually do anything except make your anger rise higher.

                                                              When learning how to deal with anger, exercise is a great outlet. If something happens that angers you, see if you have the opportunity to burn off some of the anger.

                                                              Being able to hit the gym to get a hard workout in is great. If this isn’t an option, see if you can go for a run or a bike ride. If you are at work when you become angry and the weather permits, at least go outside for a brisk walk.

                                                              Besides working some of your anger out through exercise, this also helps to give your mind a chance to work through some ways to address what it is that upset you.
