Anger Can be Healthy

Think of anger as a ball of energy that can be helpful and harmful.  It depends on how you use it.  It takes little creativity to use anger to swear, become violent and really make a clown of one’s self.  However, it takes a lot of creativity and control to direct one’s anger energy toward something productive.

Some examples of productive uses of anger:

  • Women’s right to vote
  • Civil rights
  • Self defense
  • Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
  • Writing letters to the editor
  • Motivation to finish that project you have not been working on forever

What are some ways you can use your anger effectively?
