A
nger is part of life — no less than memory, happiness, and compassion.
No one chooses to be angry. Anger is a reaction that’s built into your
nervous system. In fact, anger is one of the first emotions mothers recognize
in their newborn infants. So, it’s never too early to start anger management.
Anger says more about you — your temperament, how you view the world,
how balanced your life is, and how easily you forgive others — than it does
about other people. You don’t have to be a victim of your own anger — you
can choose how you respond when the world doesn’t treat you the way you
want it to. You have just as much choice about how you express your anger
as you do about what color shirt you wear, what you eat for breakfast, or
what time you go jogging this afternoon. You also have a choice about how
much of yesterday’s anger you carry into the future and how much anger you
are likely to experience tomorrow. If I didn’t believe that, I would have been
doing something very different with my professional life for the past 40 years!
No one is exempt from problematic anger. Anger is a very democratic
emotion — it causes problems for men and women, kids and the elderly, rich
and poor, educated and uneducated, people of all colors and ethnic back-
grounds, believers and nonbelievers. Tens of millions of human beings need-
lessly suffer from what I call toxic anger — anger that literally poisons your
life — each and every day of their lives.
Anger is not something that can — or should be — cured. But you have to
manage it well — at home, at work, and in your most intimate relationships —
if you want to benefit from it. Anger Management For Dummies tells you how
to manage your anger by focusing on the positive — how to get a good
night’s sleep, how to change your perspective on life, why confession is
better for you than venting, how to transform conflicts into challenges, and
much more. Anger management has moved far beyond the simplistic (albeit
well-intentioned) advice of years past to count to ten or take a couple of deep
breaths every time you get angry — and that’s good news!
