Understanding Anger (making sense of unwanted feelings)
About This Tool
We all feel angry from time to time. Sometimes this strong feeling of displeasure, or even hostility, comes and goes. Other times it lingers. Sometimes it becomes a problem. Some of us love feeling angry. Some of us hate feeling angry. Whatever your situation, this worksheet is designed to help you investigate the feelings of anger in your life, understand how they may be hurting you as well as helping you, and to work towards finding a different way of relating with the experience of anger. As with any feeling you feel, it is up to you to decide whether you act on that feeling or not.
This worksheet is great for anyone who has experienced anger, and particularly for those people who dislike that feeling and want to change their reactions. It takes anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes to do depending on how thoroughly one reflects upon the questions.
