Red With Anger

“Red With Anger”

What does that mean?

It is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this week we are talking about anger.

Anger is often an overlooked mental health struggle, but it can cause just as many issues as anxiety or depression.

Anger is something almost everyone deals with (similar to anxiety and depression), and the use of illicit substances and alcohol can make someone’s anger much worse.

Often times, anything we do or say out of anger is an impulsive and incorrect decision.  


When we are angry, it can be very difficult to make rational decisions. We are quick to lash out and make impulsive, reactive decisions that may have horrible consequences. 

Underlying anger issues will only get worse with time, and using things like drugs and alcohol will only make your anger worse and lead to even worse consequences. 

If you struggle with anger and making disastrous, impulsive decisions then I recommend you get plugged into many available resources that may help you: meditation, prayer, anger management, therapy, etc.

Anger may have you seeing red most of the time, but it doesn’t have to be the case. Take the time to find someone you trust to talk through your emotions.

Before making an impulsive decision in the heat of the moment, take time beforehand to pre-decide what you will do when you feel yourself getting angry. 

Coping skills are essential in making sure you do not make angry, impulsive decisions. You may also want to try avoiding people and situations that tend to make you angry.
