Individuals who experience aggressive anger are usually aware of their emotions, although they don’t always understand the true roots of your irritation and frustrations.
This may lead you to redirect violent anger and outbursts as a scapegoat on the ones you love. Because it may be too difficult to deal with the real problems.
Aggressive anger / rage often manifests as physical damages to property and other people. Learning to recognise the triggers and how to better manage the underlying symptoms is essential.
The three main approaches are expressing, suppressing, and calming. Expressing your angry feelings in an assertive – not aggressive – manner is the healthiest way to express anger.
- Think before you speak. In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to say something you’ll regret.
- Once you’re calm, express your concerns..
- Get some exercise.
- Take a timeout.
- Identify possible solutions.
- Stick with ‘I’ statements.
- Don’t hold a grudge.
- Use humour to release tension.
