Angry, afraid of life?
17th October, 2011
There are times in everyone's life when they feel angry at the world, if however, this is a normal state for us there is something fundamental causing our distress.
Do you feel you are alone in your frustration and you cannot understand why life seems so difficult.
Anger often stems from fear, a fear of what might happen or that something difficult could happen again.
Anger is a useful emotion, that helps keep us safe by warning us of danger and it is also a very strong force that when directed in the right way, can help us to achieve great results.
It can drain us and warn that we need to examine our lives and put things in place to get our anger in perspective and working for us.
Counselling can help us to do this and lead to our anger being a tool we can use to help us cope with difficult situations that arise in our lives.
