Sustained and chronic anger negatively affects your health and your relationships. You always have a choice about whether to respond with anger, based on your interpretation of the situation. Anger is not always bad and not always preventable, but it is important for you to learn how to resolve it effectively. The only way out is to work through the anger. Reframing strategies can be very helpful for moving through anger. Learn to view criticism as feedback to minimize your knee-jerk anger response. Give yourself permission to be human and make mistakes, but learn from your errors. Learn to forgive, especially yourself as well as others. Forgiveness is more for you and your own health than for anyone else.
