Anger control problems can prevent people from being able to be open to you or feeling loved by you.  In order to manage anger, get to source of it.  Ask yourself why you feel angry and look at healthy outlets for it.  Fix your diet, start to exercise, or learn how to redirect your anger.  In some cases you may need to make an appointment with a psychologist to explore it or get a coach to help you manage it.  You also might consider making time to meditate or do yoga or tai chi. 

 

Anger control problems have a direct effect on those around you. In your family, having trouble controlling your anger makes communication difficult. People are afraid to talk to you and may even avoid talking to you for fear of your angry reaction, your behavior, or physical/verbal abuse. It affects how people relate to you.
