Anger is one of the most damaging and fruitless human emotions. Everyone must learn how to cope with, how to live with it, and how to control it. Hostile people – those with high levels of cynicism, anger, and aggression – are at higher risk of developing life-threatening illness than less hostile people. Hostile people are more prone to engage in risky behaviors – eating more, drinking more alcohol, smoking, doing drugs – that could compromise their physical health. Hostile people often forfeit their control over hostile thoughts, feelings and urges. Hostile people have difficulty trusting others – forgiving others – or having empathy for others. Hostile people often take themselves too seriously and have difficulty laughing at their own silliness. Most of the time, the one who is most hurt by a hostile person is the hostile person himself/herself.
The good news is that an angry or hostile lifestyle can be overcome. With psychological attention and skilled guidance, you can be free from the anger that has controlled you. Psychological attention that is targeted and solution-focused can provide you with relief from the pain and frustration associated with uncontrolled anger.
