Crone-ing-Releasing Anger

Standard

The Crones are dealing with a lot of chaos and people dealing with the green dragon of anger these day.  It seems everyone has gone off into the abyss of darkness and do not want to walk in the light of peace and calm spirit.  I found one resource that labels the issues and makes us think about the choices we make in each second of the day.  Myself I’m looking for the peace that comes with wisdom, a soul cleanses of past tribulations and looking forward to each new day with the glorious choices of peace, hope and understanding only meditation and a clear conscious and forgiveness can give.  Maybe a review of the source of the problem will help us all to accomplish this with better skills.  Below is one source, one perspective provided with an explanation I hope helps many.

Anger-is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.

Anger-is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.

Anger Symptoms, Causes and Effects-According to a study conducted by the Harvard Medical School, close to 8 percent of adolescents display anger issues that qualify for lifetime diagnoses of intermittent explosive disorder. Anger issues aren’t limited to teens, and it’s important to understand anger symptoms, causes and effects if you suspect you are, or someone you know is, suffering from an anger disorder.
What Are the Types of Anger Disorders?
Individuals who have trouble controlling anger or who experience anger outside of a normal emotional scope can present with different types of anger disorders. Different experts have published contradicting lists of anger types, but some widely accepted forms of anger include:
Chronic anger, which is prolonged, can impact the immune system and be the cause of other mental disorders

Passive anger, which doesn’t always come across as anger and can be difficult to identify

Overwhelmed anger, which is caused by life demands that are too much for an individual to cope with

Self-inflicted anger, which is directed toward the self and may be caused by feelings of guilt

Judgmental anger, which is directed toward others and may come with feelings of resentment

Volatile anger, which involves sometimes-spontaneous bouts of excessive or violent ange

Passive Anger-People experiencing passive anger may not even realize they are angry. When you experience passive anger, your emotions may be displayed as sarcasm, apathy or meanness. You might participate in self-defeating behaviors such as skipping school or work, alienating friends and family, or performing poorly in professional or social situations. To outsiders, it will look like you are intentionally sabotaging yourself, although you may not realize it or be able to explain your actions. Because passive anger may be repressed, it can be hard to recognize; counseling can help you identify the emotions behind your actions, bringing the object of your anger to light so you can deal with it.

Aggressive Anger-Individuals who experience aggressive anger are usually aware of their emotions, although they don’t always understand the true roots of their ire. In some cases, they redirect violent anger outbursts to scapegoats because it is too difficult to deal with the real problems. Aggressive anger often manifests as volatile or retaliatory anger and can result in physical damages to property and other people. Learning to recognize triggers and manage anger symptoms is essential to dealing positively with this form of anger.

What Causes Anger? A leading cause of anger is a person’s environment. Stress, financial issues, abuse, poor social or familial situations, and overwhelming requirements on your time and energy can all contribute to the formation of anger. As with disorders such as alcoholism, anger issues may be more prevalent in individuals who were raised by parents with the same disorder. Genetics and your body’s ability to deal with certain chemicals and hormones also play a role in how you deal with anger; if your brain doesn’t react normally to serotonin, you might find it more difficult to manage your emotions.

What Are the Signs of an Anger Management Problem? Losing your cool from time to time doesn’t mean you have an anger management problem. Mental health professionals look at trends in your behavior, emotional symptoms and physical symptoms to diagnose an anger disorder.
Emotional Symptoms of Anger-Related Problems- You might think the emotional symptom of anger-related problems are limited to anger, but a number of emotional states could indicate that you are failing to deal with anger in a positive and healthy fashion. Constant irritability, rage and anxiety are possible emotional symptoms. If you feel overwhelmed, have trouble organizing or managing your thoughts or fantasize about hurting yourself or others, you could be experiencing an anger disorder or another issue. Don’t wait for these emotions to take control of your life;
Physical Symptoms of Anger-
Related Problems Strong emotions often bring about physical changes to the body, and anger is no exception. Letting anger issues go unaddressed can put your overall health at risk. Some physical symptoms of anger-related problems include:
Tingling

Heart palpitations or tightening of the chest

Increased blood pressure

Headaches

Pressure in the head or sinus cavities

Fatigue

Short-Term and Long-Term Effects of Anxiety-Unresolved anger issues lead to anxiety, which can have long-term effects on your life. Immediate effects of anxiety might include dizziness, rapid breathing, nausea, muscle pain, muscle tension, headaches, and problems with concentration and memory. Such symptoms can make it difficult to perform routine tasks and can add to generalized anger about life. Long-term anxiety can pose dangerous risks to your physical and emotional states. Individuals who suffer from long bouts of anxiety can be at a greater risk for strokes. Serious memory loss, chronic sleep disorders and relationship issues can also develop. Before your anger and anxiety wreak havoc with your entire life, find out what you can do to stop the cause
