Anger Management Certification Blog on Unresolved Anger and Forgiveness

In any type of trauma, there is anger.  Anger can continue to feed the trauma and keep it alive longer.  Anger can also weaken the individual overtime through depression, fatigue and anxiety.  Keeping strong emotional anger is unhealthy and it is important to learn how to properly release anger.  This does not mean one does not have a right to be angry over the offense and trauma, but i does mean one must escape the anger before it becomes toxic.

Anger keeps trauma highly charged and weakens the self.  It leads to sarcasm and bitterness in life, as well as resentment and possibly revenge.  Revenge leads to further destruction and a cycle of violence and continued trauma.  Furthermore, anger that prevents forgiveness stunts social growth. It prevents trust, increases hatred and forces oneself to close off to others.  Hence it is important more so for one’s health to resolve anger and forgive than for the lack of worthiness of the offender to receive it.

Unresolved anger can lead to health issues. It is far better to release anger for oneself. Please also review AIHCP’s Anger Management Certification

 

Many feel forgiveness is impossible.  Perhaps they view the offense as unforgivable.  Rape, molestation and murder are sometimes very hard things to forgive.  These things represent the worst within human society.  Other things may be easier to forgive, but regardless of the degree, if one associates an action as unforgivable, then it becomes an anchor around one’s neck.  Others feel they must protect themselves and must remain bitter and remain closed.  Those who were physically abused, may feel their anger empowers them and protects them from ever being hurt again by never letting someone get close to them.   Others feel they may betray themselves or their loved one, if they forgive the perpetrator.   These are all blocks to resolving unhealthy anger and moving forward in life.

Anger is an emotion that may very well be important to the event.  It is in fact a true emotion in trauma. It is OK to be angry.  It is OK to feel the anger, but eventually, the anger can become toxic.  It is important to start to experience the anger and understand it, but in a way that allows one to remain in touch with its importance but not its ill effects.  It needs to be analyzed free from the toxic charge of initial rage, so one can understand its rationale and comprehend where it is aimed.

In doing so, many times, things need to be said, when those things cannot be said, then it is important to be able to find other ways to release.  This is especially true when justice is not given to a particular case that prevents closure.  Justice is an excellent way to help heal unresolved anger but in so many cases, justice at least in this world is not given.  It is hence critical to be able to resolve anger sometimes without justice.

Some therapists suggest Gestalt Chairs, when one plays the role of both oneself and perpetrator.  This allows the necessary discussion as one plays both roles.  Being able to vocally express anger, confrontation and forgiveness is key.  Furthermore, those with a belief of the afterlife, can find some closure knowing nothing goes unpunished before God.  Ultimately, facing anger, the situation and forgiving, frees oneself from the perpetrator.

Forgiveness, however, does not mean minimizing the event, or condoning it, or forgetting it, or trusting the same person again.  It does not dismiss the event, but it frees oneself from the emotional tie of the perpetrator.  Even if one does not ask, it can free oneself.  Forgiveness does not mean the individual still must pay a debt in this life or the next but it does allow one to move forward.

It is important in some cases to ask for forgiveness, but in other cases, this may not be an option, but the key is to decide to finally heal.  Being able to resolve anger and give forgiveness may have to be done in constructive ways to release.  Gestalt chairs or belief in God may be the best ways to forgive and understand.  One needs to try to forgive the best way they can for their own healing.  Sometimes, this can be accomplished through rituals such as confession, or other forms of expression.

In can sometimes be difficult to give forgiveness. Please also review AIHCP’s Anger Management Certification

 

Trauma is difficult to overcome.  Some trauma is more severe and some cases of anger are harder to overcome.  It is not an issue of denying the evil that occurred but it is an issue of healing and finding peace for oneself. Holding on to anger does not punish the perpetrator but it punishes the self and allows the perpetrator to continue to hurt the victim.  It is hence important to learn ways to live and forgive before one’s life is totally destroyed.

Anger Management Certification Article on Anger and Revenge

Many become angry over issues of inequality, unfairness and injustice.  It is natural to become angry over these things.  However, it is important to control anger that turns to destructive action.  The old adage of an eye for an eye justice needs to be avoided.  When someone is treated unfairly, or feels they have been treated unfairly, disgust and discontent grow.  When those emotions or needs are not met, then anger can erupt.  Sometimes, the injustice is objective, but in many cases, one’s idea of fair or not fair is very subjective.  The response from individuals can be destructive and outweigh the abuse itself in some cases.

Within the social contract, individuals cannot let anger take control in issues of injustice and unfair treatment. Please also review our Anger Management Certification

 

The ideal that a man must correct wrongs is a common male image.  It is found on television and pop culture but it is something society has dismissed long ago with the social contract.  When injustice occurs, or a perception of unfairness, individuals surrender revenge to the state to find neutral justice.  A justice that objectively is diagnosed without bias.

Unfortunately, when the state fails to correct injustice, and the social contract fails, one can see large and sometimes violent movements.

The article, “An Eye for an Eye” by Aaron Karmin looks at how anger and revenge are detrimental to society and how individuals must learn to control the emotion of anger when confronted with unfairness.  He states,

“Unfairness is linked to anger, but as mentioned earlier, anger is a secondary emotion, What is felt first, the primary emotion, is powerlessness, disrespect and/or resentment. It’s like pushing a button on a computer. Talking about the problem stimulates emotions and allows them to pop to the surface to see the connection between yesterday and today”
