Anger May Be a Symptom of Your Beliefs
by Buck Black
are a variety of reasons a person may become angry. In previous articles, I have discussed the primary feelings that result
in anger and the high expectations one may have, which result in disappointment and subsequent anger. I now want to introduce
how a person’s belief system can cause a great deal of anger, which is based on the work of Albert Ellis.
are your beliefs? Which ones do you hold dear? Which beliefs do you have that do not serve you anymore—or even cause
you harm? A belief is something that you hold to be true. You can think of it as a value system or a list of “shoulds
and should nots.” For example, you could have a belief that everyone should be kind to one another, you should always
get your way, or being a nice person will get you far in life and people will never take advantage of you.
these beliefs are formed when you are a child. They often are instilled by a parent, teacher, or other person you saw as an
authority figure or mentor. Often, these teachings, (which frequently turn into beliefs) are a fantastic asset. However, we
all develop beliefs that cause problems later down the road. For example, the people who believe they should always get their
way are likely to be substantially angrier compared to those who do have more rational beliefs, such as knowing that you cannot
win every time.
The next time you get upset, take a look at what belief you have that is making you angry. Then, ask
yourself “is my belief rational?” Many times, that belief is not practical or rational. Once you recognize the
problem with this belief, then you can make an adjustment as needed. For example, you may realize that a certain belief you
have is so irrational that there is no way you can remain calm while continuing with this belief. Once you find those beliefs
that are more irrational or absurd, you are so much more likely to be able to control your anger. Another adjustment may be
to add some understanding to your belief. For example, if you believe you should always be treated fairly, it may be helpful
to tell yourself that you deserve to be treated fairly, but you know that there will be times that people try to take advantage
of you—that’s life! In my experience, I get many people in my office who are able to significantly reduce their
anger when they find ways to roll with it, instead of taking it head-on.
You might be thinking, “What if my
belief IS rational?” Testing your beliefs may help you to learn when you have justified anger. Remember, anger is helpful
when used appropriately. Just think of the people who use anger to appropriately stand up for themselves when they are being
taken advantage of. If it were not for justified anger, there would be fewer civil rights, women would not be voting, and
there would be so many more injustices in the world. When anger is justified, remember to use that energy in a positive manner,
instead of being violent, verbally abusive, or doing something else that will end up hurting yourself or others.
