Anger is part of the human panoply of emotion. But, in the twenty-first century, so is excess and extremity of reaction. We live to extremes and with extremes, and that dynamic may be responsible for the consequences many of us suffer when anger becomes outsized and problematic. The world around us reinforces messages that communicate conflicting, sometimes contradictory, messages. We should always be happy; we live in the richest country in the world so we should never be stressed about money; to be independent is optimal, so craving a healthy primary relationship should not be a priority for us. When the messages we receive conflict with what our deeper, inner selves tell us we want, internal conflict seems inevitable.

An outgrowth of that combination is often anger. Our world reinforces the paradoxical message that anger is inappropriate to express in public settings but that it’s also an emotion that should be felt toward the smallest slight to the most obvious outrage. The only consistent aspect of the dynamic is that our response to anger becomes less and less healthy.
Licensed Minnesota Psychologist Laurie Grengs can help you work through anger and more importantly the underlying issues that may have caused you to develop difficult to destructive patterns of anger in your life. Anger, in and of itself, is not a bad emotion. Again, it is part of the human panoply of emotion. But unhealthy habits can distort our perceptions of the causes of our anger responses, and when that happens, we begin to lose our capacity to control anger and we find that anger begins to control us.
