Anger Management Institute

Forgiveness is the hardest choice and journey we as humans make. There are so many obstacles and so many reasons we don’t want to choose to let anger and resentment towards someone or something go. What does it mean to forgive? How many times must I forgive? What circumstances should I not forgive? These are questions we all have. We get angry when someone treats us unjustly or disrespectfully. Sometimes we are angry because we feel misunderstood or have misinterpreted someone else. Anger leads to resentment when we don’t work through it satisfactorily. Someone once wrote: “Resentment is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” The trouble is that resentment is painful. It wounds us more as we ruminate on situations and people. Resentment tends to expand into the rest of our lives. It clouds our thinking and keeps us from moving forward. It permeates other relationships. The important aspect to note is that we must take a look at our anger and resentment and determine the issues at the core, whether they are legitimate and how to resolve them if possible.

Anger is an emotion that everyone feels to some extent. It may start out with a sense of frustration or disappointment. Anger can quickly get out of control. But, we believe that the emotion of anger is an energy which can be transformed into something good. People can learn to direct anger into faith, assertiveness, problem-solving, empathy, conflict resolution and discover forgiveness. Christians can learn to express a godly and righteous anger when they are triggered by frustrating events and people.
