Ask Yourself "What Can My Anger Do For Me?" | Justin Lioi, LCSW - Brooklyn, NY

Anger isn’t all bad. Getting in touch with the themes of your anger can help you channel and express it in non-destructive (and even productive) ways.

Yet we’re often so scared of anger. When we watch it we see how destructive it can be. It’s so powerful, but dangerous. Unpredictable as well.

The other side of anger is how we internalize it and let it morph into self-hatred.

I believe there are other ways to manage or have access to this emotion. It’s actually a pretty important emotion and one that bears more exploring. Let me know if you agree at GoodTherapy.org. I’m a Topic Expert over there and my latest article is called The Misunderstood Emotion: Getting to Know Your Anger.
