Anxiety and anger are tied closely together. Anxiety can lead to multiple issues for an individual. Anger is a result of anxiety. Lack of proper coping and allowing anxiety to overtake oneself can put a person into a fight or flight situation where emotions and anger can become unleashed.
Dr Conte discusses the importance of dealing with anxiety and how to better cope with it. Dr Conte in his video, “How to Dealk with Anxiety” takes a closer look into controlling anxiety and anger. He states,
“Anxiety can be crippling; so in this video, I offer some practical ways to deal with it. Obviously there is more to discuss about anxiety than what I cover in this brief video, which is why my plan is to continue to make more videos to help however I can. Sending everyone who watches this much”
Domestic Violence is a growing crime in America. Thousands of cases emerge each year with many cases of the repeat offending nature. The danger to the victim can escalate in time. Unfortunately, many victims report once it is too late and their life is in true danger.
Domestic Violence while usually considered a crime against women, can also be a crime against men as well. It is also more than merely bruising and beating but any push, shove or slap. Furthermore, even if physical abuse does not occur, mental abuse can be as long term damaging. Individuals need to spot the signs of abuse and break it before they become a statistic themselves.
The article, “Domestic violence: Misconceptions, Myths and Mistakes” by Alderman Rupa Blackwell states,
“I’m a survivor of domestic violence, and I get really nervous when people begin to talk about domestic violence around me. Not because I’m afraid to share my story or because I’m still triggered by the years of abuse, but because I know they will likely share some misconception about the cycle of violence.”
Anger Management can help prevent domestic violence, but one should always be seek professional help before determining if a situation is now safe or not. Please also review our Anger Management Program
Anger can get the best of anyone. Unfortunately, even if no physical violence ensures, words can cause emotional damage that cannot be repaired. It is important in whatever relationship we are in with others to conduct ourselves with kindness and patience even when angry. We want to avoid saying something we may not mean.
In doing so, sometimes, we need to walk away. We cannot always be a perfect saint and smile when angry and it is critical and even in some cases healthy to walk away. In doing so, one needs to communicate frustration in a healthy way. One needs to communicate that they are very angry and wish to remove oneself from the situation. This allows one to calm down before speaking.
The article, “Anger Management: What to Say When You’re Too Angry to Talk ” by Jeremy Brown lists a variety of phrases one can use to remove oneself from an angry situation and avoid saying something one may later regret. He states,
“So, the question becomes, when you become so angry that you can’t process emotions any more, how can you manage it? And what do you say when you’re too angry to talk? It comes down to understanding, managing, and explaining your emotions.”
It is extremely important to control rage and anger. Too many times, we can hurt someone simply with our words. These words can deeply hurt someone or escalate a situation. We end up later regretting what was said and then have to seek forgiveness. Instead of hurting others with words, use words that remove oneself from the situation. It is better to politely excuse oneself and discuss the situation later than to say something one may forever regret.

Good article about Lent and Anger and how we can better control our emotions, not only for our health and the safety of others but also for our own spiritual development
The article, 5 Ways to reject unhealthy anger this Lent, by Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble states
“Anger is all around us these days. The emotion of anger in itself is not a bad thing. Thomas Aquinas went so far as to say that not responding to something with anger can be a vice because sometimes reason demands anger at injustice and sin.”
