Are you a person who feels like a hot-headed monster every time you get a little angry? Well, you’re not alone. Anger is a very powerful emotion that can make us feel like we’re about to go Hulk mode at any moment. But before you go smashing things, let’s talk about how anger can actually be healthy in small doses.
Anger is sorta like hot sauce – a dash of the potent liquid can both spice and flavor to your boring life, but if you pile it on too heavily, you’ll be left with a fiery mess. And probably a fiery butthole. You see, healthy anger can motivate us to take action and make positive changes in our lives, like telling your roommate to clean their dishes for once (seriously, it’s not that hard). It can also help us set boundaries and stand up for ourselves, like telling a rude customer to beat it, or put a controlling partner in their place.
Just like hot sauce, too much anger can be bad for you. It can lead to strained relationships and legal trouble (yeah, breaking your boss’s stapler is never a good idea). That’s why it’s important to learn how to manage and express anger in a healthy way, instead of letting it turn you into a raging bull. So, if you’re someone who struggles with anger, or just want to enjoy some humor about the emotion, this listicle is for you.
