What many people don't realize is that there truly is an economics to anger management. We often fail to realize that the time and energy that goes into behaving badly and the aftermath that follows almost never exceeds the possible outcome of behaving appropriately.
To articulate this point, imagine for a moment you are really upset and hurt at your spouse, friend, family member or someone that you really care about. In a moment of rage, you say or do some things that you really regret. It might take hours, days, weeks or even years to repair the damage from what you have done. The costs are both emotional and physical and the outcome usually effects our credibility with the other person as well as our trust.
Now on the flip side, image if you used the skills you may have learned from anger management classes
and took the extra time to either communicate better, use more empathy, or simply take a time out from the situation. You may have been able to resolve it in a matter of minutes. From an economic standpoint, you have saved yourself an uncountable amount of time because you don't have to deal with all the problems that come from behaving badly.
Gaining skills in anger management is a cost savings on a number of levels. It's not about the money, its about the cost of your relationships with other people. Don't let your anger devastate another relationship that might be incredibly meaningful to you. Take an anger control class or an online anger management class
and gain skills before you loose what is most important to you.
