One of the most common questions we get about anger management is: “how can I tell if I need anger management help?” After all, everyone gets angry at some point or another. How can someone tell when anger has crossed the line from “something that happens” to “a problem that needs to be addressed?” Here at PCI Centers, we have multiple therapies that can assist you or someone you care about getting the most help for your anger management. Below, we’ve collected some signs that it may be time to reach out to someone about your anger.
“Angry All the Time” – Anger Management Control
Everyone gets angry. You’re cut off on the highway, someone says something rude to you on social media, you get into an argument with a co-worker — these are common things that occur in life. However, when most people have these daily flashes of anger, they’re just that: flashes. They flash brightly, blow up, and then fade away. If you find that your anger doesn’t go away, or that you’re angry quite often, then it may be time to reach out for help.
“I Keep Hurting People I Care About”
If your anger continually hurts your relationships, then that’s a clear sign that you should reach out to someone. All of us, at one point or another, have said something to someone we care about that we later regret, that we wish we could take back, that we’ve said out of anger and not out of compassion. Again, the key factor here is whether or not it keeps happening. If this feels not like a one-off, but as a rather consistent occurrence and continued behavior, then reaching out to get help for your anger is something that could benefit you greatly (as well as those around you). So many who have come to us for help with their anger have told us it’s because they did something that they “regret.” Another common occurrence, unfortunately, is when your anger leads you to be abusive, whether it’s verbally or physically.
“I Can’t Control my Anger”
Anger can be impossible to control for some. We’ve helped many people in dealing with what’s called “chronic anger,” a prolonged condition that can actually lead to many additional health problems. In fact, at PCI Centers, we’re equipped to help with many different kinds of anger disorders. Whether your anger comes from feeling overwhelmed, judgemental, or passive, or even if it is directed inward (self-inflicted anger), we can help.
More than Anger Management Help
Reaching out to someone to get help with your anger isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s actually the opposite: a sign of real bravery. It’s a sign that you’re willing to change, that you’re trying to do something different. Here at PCI Centers, we have helped many to ultimately overcome their anger issues, so that they can lead a healthier, more fulfilling life.
