Anger is a natural emotion and under normal circumstances, it works as a signal to let us know that something is wrong and that action may need to be taken to resolve the problem. However, for some people, anger can become an unchecked emotion that results in explosive anger.
This kind of anger is not normal and if left untreated, can cause serious problems in life. Explosive anger can cause issues at home, at work, in the larger community an can seriously affect a person’s overall physical and mental health.
If you are suffering from uncontrolled episodes of displayed anger and it is causing even more problems in your life, it is time to seek anger management therapy services.
