Anger Management - Solace for the Victims
Although they all can be destructive the lashing out type of anger or anger directed towards others is most disturbing.
It should be said though, that even if one is the direct recipient of the anger being emitted from another individual, it is still distressing and makes anger management everyone's business.
So is anger that is directed towards someone abuse? In the technical sense it, is as the best definition to describe abuse is anything that may be offensive, cause injury or be harmful in some way.
If an angry person is directing his anger towards you with hurtful and nasty words or even in a raised voice, then yes they are being abusive.
It would be anger abuse.
Now does it have to be accepted simply because it is generally accepted that the angry person is out of control and cannot help himself? No it doesn't, and yet many in society accept anger abuse much more readily than other forms of abuse.
In terms of physical and mental abuse society is beginning to make it known that it isn't acceptable, yet anger abuse should be placed in this very same category.
