Constructive Anger


Can anger be constructive?

Anger can be constructive. There is such a thing as justifiable anger, and this anger, when controlled can be constructive. A person can be angry yet maintain control. When that happens, a discussion about the situation that caused the anger can be constructive and people can learn from the situation that caused the anger. Anger doesn’t have to be out of control, with people screaming at each other or not talking to each other. If the parties are reasonable, a discussion about the situation that caused the anger can bring about a resolution to the problem and thus be constructive. Anger is not necessarily a bad thing. It can bring about understanding and resolution of problems. Anger can indeed be constructive.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
