Do You Have Anger Issues?
Do you frequently find yourself losing your temper over minor inconveniences? Have others expressed concerns about your angry outbursts or temperamental behavior? Do you often feel that your anger gets in the way of your daily life and relationships?
If yes, you need to know that it might be rooted in biology. Your brain’s wiring and the balance of chemicals like serotonin can make you prone to anger. Stress and a lack of sleep can crank up your irritability meter.
Then there’s the psychological angle. You might be carrying the baggage of past traumas or the experiences of facing bad anger management within your family.
But it is important to understand that anger is a normal and productive emotion that serves an important purpose—alerting you to the values that matter most to you, the boundaries you don't want crossed, or the change you want to bring in your life or in the world.
So, eliminating anger is not the goal, but the key is to manage it or even channel it in productive ways. In such a case, you might want to take this quiz and consult a professional.
