Anger is Like Armour

Big Hug Book

Shona Innes, Irisz Agocs

Anger is an emotion that lets us know that things are not how they should be. Rather than getting rid of anger, the focus needs to be on listening to, or being aware of, our anger so that we can use the angry feelings as a cue for appropriate action. Anger is a bit like Armour. People use armour to protect themselves from getting hurt…..
We need to listen to how our anger is warning us that there is trouble, then try to work out a good way to fix the trouble…
This is another book in the BIG HUG series, an Australian series, written by a clinical and forensic psychologist.
