It’s okay to get angry…sometimes it makes things better!

Good Day World!

We all get angry at one time or another in our life. The negative outburst that usually follows can be good, or bad. Just depends. 

Have you ever heard about anger being a positive thing?

There are all sorts of good sensible, civilized reasons to avoid getting angry.

Not only does it make you feel bad, it makes you do stupid things without noticing the risks and it can be self-destructive.

As a result civilized people do their best to suppress, redirect and mask their anger. Most of us treat our anger as though it’s unreasonable, and unmentionable.

But like all emotions anger has its purposes, which can be used to good effect.

Here’s six upsides to getting angry.

Anger can reduce violence, benefit relationships, promote optimism and be a useful motivating force, but it can just as easily be destructive.

That’s the wonder of human emotions: happy isn’t always good and angry isn’t always bad (although it may feel that way).

An unhappy person is also more likely to spot mistakes and an angry person is highly motivated to act. We need reminding that even scary and dangerous emotions have their upsides, as long as they are used for the correct purpose.

Used right, anger can be a handy tool. But use with caution as people find anger the most difficult of all the emotions to control.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
