The Economics of Gaining Skills in Anger Management

What many people don’t realize is that there truly is an economics to anger management. We often fail to get that the time and energy that goes into behaving badly and the fallout that follows almost never exceeds the possible outcome of behaving more reasonably.

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 wish you hadn’t.  It might take hours, days, weeks or even years to repair the wreckage 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, imagine if you used the skills you may have learned from anger management classes and took the time needed to either speak more assertively, use more emotional intelligence, or simply take a break from the situation.  You may have been able to resolve it easily.  From an economic standpoint, you have saved yourself an uncountable amount of time because you don’t have to deal with all the issues that come from behaving badly.

Gaining skills in anger management is a real 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 management class or an online anger management class and gain skills before you loose what is most important to you.
