What seperates persons slow to anger from those who walk around with a chip on their shoulder? Two simple characteristics, that's what!

ANGER: Who’s Most at Risk? By Margie Roop, LPCC-S; CEAP; SAP Anger is a normal emotion just like sadness, happiness, frustration, fear, worry, etc…We are all capable of a full range of emotions, including anger. But, what is it about someone who just doesn’t seem to get angry about much of anything? How is it that they are able to “roll with the punches” and not get too bothered about stuff that may infuriate the next person? Perception: It is all about how I see a situation. We all know someone in our lives who is able to allow things to just roll off their backs. We also know someone who over-reacts to almost everything. What makes them so different? Most persons who are slow to anger seem to have certain key strengths which allow them to not perceive fear, threats, doom and gloom, or some other untoward thing that might befall them! They are: confident, centered (balanced), positive outlook, self-assured, peaceful, understanding, empathic, see the glass as half-full. Persons who are quick to anger (or over-react) tend to be: uptight, fearful, nervous, insecure, hypersensitive, stressed, irritable, negative outlook, moody, suspicious, demanding, hard on themselves, hyper-vigilant, see the glass as half-empty. Also, how one expresses the emotion of anger, varies from person to person. It doesn’t mean someone is NOT angry just because they don’t LOOK angry. One can feel anger and even express anger in a very normal tone of voice all the while looking relaxed! But, how do they do that; how are they able to not only feel the emotion of anger, but express it in a relaxed manner while getting their point across? Self-Care: If I am taking steps to take care of myself, adopt a healthy lifestyle, surround myself with healthy people, and/or STRIVE for a positive outcome as it relates to my relationships with people, then less will upset me. Thus, if I need to express my feeling of anger towards someone, I‘ll probably be able to do so calmly and in a way that gets my message across! If I do not take care of myself in my life, and instead, adopt an unhealthy lifestyle, surround myself with unhealthy people, and/or CANNOT possibly envision a positive outcome, then a.) I’ll feel angry much more often, and b.) When I DO express my anger, it will NOT be done appropriately and my true message will not get across (won’t be received). Which option do YOU want? What changes do YOU need to make? “Our Deepest Fear” “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us……” Marianne Williamson Call LifeServices EAP for further consultation for YOUR workforce! 1-800-822-4847
