James 1:19-20 KJV
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
We can either choose to control our emotions, or let our emotions control us. Anger is one of the more powerful emotions. One of the reasons for anger is the bodies reaction to a perceived threat. It is a protective instinct. It is a very natural reaction to feel anger when someone has wronged or mistreated us. The key is to control and use anger as a tool, instead of allowing it to control us.
If anger controls you, this can negatively impact your psychological wellness. Feeling anger frequently, feeling extreme anger, or suppressing anger can have negative health effects as well. Anger can affect more than just your health. It influences a person’s ability to make decisions, emotionally bond, and make and keep goals.
Anger management can help you learn to gain self awareness into the way your body individually reacts to stressful situations- like a perceived threat. Becoming self aware is important in anger management.
