This Is How I Control My Anger

by Anna
(Coral Gables, FL)

Hi,
I'm Anna. Anger was a HUGE part of my life. But after my anger issues caused me to loose my job, I knew I had to do something.

I started CBT therapy, journaling and go to anger management group meetings every week at my local community center. I'm not saying that I don't lose my temper sometimes, but oh my goodness. I'm so much better than I was.

I also meet with my pastor sometimes just to talk about stuff that's going on in my life. It feels good to talk about the things that makes me feel down and the other things that piss me off. I now know that pent up emotions only leds to explosive anger down the road.

My family tells me all the time how much calmer and happier I am nowadays. My only wish I started my anger management plan sooner. I would have saved myself a ton of grief.

I hope this helps someone.

Peace,
Anna
