Chapter 9. Just or Unjust? > Basics of Just and Unjust Anger

Basics of Just and Unjust Anger

Legitimate Useless Just and Unjust
Anger is always valid. It is an emotion, a feeling you need not deny yourself. Anger is useless when it causes you problems, or when it hurts you or others and leads to destructive behavior. Anger can be just when there was an intent to hurt, but it must be handled constructively.
   Your anger is unjust when you distort and attack when there was no intent to harm you.
Remember, don't create a problem where there was none.


Taking Responsibility

  1. Ask yourself: “Is my anger hurting me or others?”

  2. Ask yourself: “Is my anger just, and how can I handle it constructively?”

  3. Ask yourself: “How can I learn to make my anger work for me, not against me?”
