Thoughts and Observations
Thoughts about anger
"Anyone can become angry -- that is easy. But to be angry with the right person,to the right degree,at the right time,for the right purpose,and in the right way -- this is not easy."
Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)
Everyone has the right to be angry, it’s part of the human condition; indeed, it's an integral part of how we deal with fear and injustice, of how we protect ourselves and our loved ones, a part of our survival.
It becomes a problem when it is the only way someone has of dealing with life’s problems and relationships; when it is the only way someone has of coping or dealing with whatever cards life happens to deal that day.
No-one can be happy or content when they are angry. Counselling is a way of helping to find where that anger belongs, working through it and closing an open wound that otherwise may always hurt.
