How To Control Your Anger Before It Controls You is an in-depth look at one of the most misunderstood emotions.
More than any other negative emotions, the authors of How To Control Your Anger Before It Controls You, Albert Ellis and Arthur Lange, say anger is the one we mostly want to keep because it sometimes seems justified and right for us to be in that state. They write:
When we experience depression, guilt, shame, or anxiety, we usually upset ourselves about something that we think we did or some characteristic we have that we think is the cause of our disturbed emotion. As a result we try to change ourselves. However, anger usually involves the externalizing of blame. When we become angry, we usually consider the source of our anger to be outside ourselves. We would not be angry if other people did not do the stupid things they do. If we think the causes of anger are outside ourselves, the solution to our anger problems appears to us to be changes other people have to make. If the external cause of our anger is not going to change, we remain trapped in our rage.
How To Control Your Anger Before It Controls You is a book on anger management, focusing how to control it before and after it's taken roots. It shows us how the root of anger is linked to negative thinking patterns and how to think yourself out of it. How To Control Your Anger Before It Controls You is an in-depth look at one of the most misunderstood emotions.
