Anger & You Quiz Discussion – Part 2C (Continued):

The answers are all false on the “Anger & You” quiz; does this surprise you? Many people have misconceptions about anger. Did you know that “anger” for many, many years (probably before most of us were born or grown up) was the only socially permissible and acceptable emotion for a man to show (men was taught to be cold-hearted and not to show emotions; boys don’t cry). If a man showed any other emotion, they were labeled as “weak-not a real man.” In some homes, cultures, and countries, this is still believed today. Wow! No wonder there is so much domestic violence in the home. This belief seed was planted long ago by the enemy to destroy families.

You thought that was something, listen to this: for women it was the opposite - it was the only socially unacceptable emotion - “nice girls don’t get angry.” The enemy was setting the women up to allow men to totally dominate them, by any means necessary. Adam’s disobedience opened up Pandora’s Box. It opened the door for every evil thing we can and cannot imagine; no wonder God does not want us to walk in disobedience - He says it’s the same sin as witchcraft.

Expressions of Anger

*Anger becomes a problem when it is expressed in a way that hurts you or hurts others; or when it is the only feeling you allow yourself to experience. You must be able to identify destructive behaviors caused by anger and clarification of description of any. Here is a list of destructive behaviors that anger can cause if not dealt with properly:

  -Physically abusing others

  -Emotionally abusing others

  -Breaking personal items

  -Breaking people’s possessions

We must examine ourselves if we truly want to combat anger.

*Session Two – Part 2C – “Reactions or Response to Anger:”

Three ways we respond to anger and key Items in learning to manage our anger:

  • Suppression (A refusal to acknowledge anger) – people who suppress their anger are called “Crème Puffs.” They deny their anger or ignore it until one day it surfaces in one manner or another. They turn their anger inward and anger turned inward causes depression – these people are over controlled and over responsible.

  • Repression (Stuffs it down) – these people are called “Steel Magnolias.” Inside there is a hard core of steel. Stuffing anger has an effect on the body. People who handle anger this way can be sarcastic, they may smile, but you can feel the knife in your back, they say things that really hurt and then turn it around on you and say “Gee, I had no idea you were so sensitive.” They handout the silent treatment and send mixed messages.

  • Uncontrolled Expression - (Let it all hang out – locomotive) – this is where we can find ourselves in trouble with others. People who handle anger this way generally explode when they are angry.

  • Suppression implodes – uncontrolled expression explodes. - They are often hostile, combative, and critical, they shame others, they do anything they can do to make the other person feel their wrath, and it’s always someone else’s fault. Now if you recognize yourself as anyone of the above – take courage – you can change – claim the promise of God, “I can do all things through Christ who strengths me!” You are not alone!
