Anger is a valid, healthy emotion. However, many of us learned from a very young age, that anger can be dangerous and destructive. In the words of anger management guru John Lee, "Anger equals pain". As children, it is vital that our angry feelings are accepted by our caretakers. If these feelings are not heard and respected, we carry our resentments into adulthood and project them onto others, especially loved ones, work colleagues and those in authority. As grown ups, most of us fall into two distinct categories of behaviour, affecting both our mental and physical states. This in turn can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, ill health, relationship break-down and loss of job etc.
