Anger is, at times, a useful and necessary emotion. It signals that something is not right and moves us to action. The expression of healthy anger, targeted toward positive change, followed by letting go of the anger itself, is one aspect of emotional health.
If left unchecked, anger often leads to behavior we later regret, resulting in pain and isolation from others. If you or a loved one struggle with anger issues, then Christian counseling, specializing in anger management, may be the key to freedom, providing control over the seemingly overpowering emotions so that you can live a Christ-filled, peaceful life.
My dearly loved brothers, understand this: Everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger,for man’s anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness. – James 1:19
Uncontrolled anger issues may make it difficult for you to take a step back and cool off before taking action. We are aware of the powerful hold that anger can exert. It is a strong emotion, difficult to manage –particularly when connected to the deep-rooted pain that triggers anger issues. Even though mastering your anger may seem to be impossible at the moment, Christian anger management counseling is able to help you develop self-control, allowing you to slow down, process your powerful emotions, respond in healthy ways, and eventually release the anger itself.
