What will Mismanaged Anger Cost You?

What many potential anger management clients don't realize is that there truly is an economics to anger management. We often fail to get that the time and energy that goes into behaving terribly and the fallout that follows almost never exceeds the possible outcome of behaving appropriately.

To articulate this point, think for a moment you are really upset and hurt at your spouse, friend, family member or someone that you really care about. In a moment of anger, you say or do some things that you really regret. It might take hours, days, weeks or even years to repair the damage from what you have done. The costs are both emotional and physical and the outcome usually effects our credibility with the other person as well as our trust.

Now on the back side, imagine if you used the skills you may have learned from anger control classes and took the time needed to either communicate better, use more emotional intelligence, or simply take a time out from the situation. You may have been able to resolve it quickly. From an economic standpoint, you have saved yourself an immeasurable amount of time because you don't have to deal with all the problems that come from behaving badly.

Gaining skills in anger management is a cost savings on a number of levels. It's not about the money, its about the cost of your relationships with other loved ones. Don't let your anger devastate another relationship that might be incredibly meaningful to you. Take an anger control class or an online anger management class and gain skills before you loose what means the most to you.
