Weekly Anger Tips

The emotions that surround conflict – hostility, anger and rage, are a perfectly normal occurrence between human beings.  It is not necessarily good nor is it necessarily bad. It is just a very common by-product of people working and living together.

Secondly, conflict and its accompanying hostility, anger and rage can only occur in situations where people care about what’s going on. If nobody gives a hoot about how things are done, who is doing what to whom and which things are more important than other things, there is nothing to get emotional about.  It is only when people are personally invested in what’s happening that these emotions occur.

Thirdly, the people involved in the conflict must be in an inter-dependent relationship in order for the conflict and its associated hostility, anger and rage to exist.  Perhaps this is why bystanders to hostile acts do not react.  They don’t care what’s going on and wish to remain uninvolved.
