Feeling Angry? How to Channel This Emotion Into Something Positive
Do current world situations leave you feeling angry? We all face anger at some point in our lives—especially if we find ourselves in a troubling situation in which we might “lose it.”
Getting angry is not all bad in itself; it is one of the basic human emotions. It is vital for basic survival as it prepares a person to “fight.” Feelings of frustration may also protect us from danger.
But health problems often arise when people respond to anger with aggression over a prolonged period. Medical science affirms that the release of too much stress hormone over time destroys short-term memory and judgment. It even weakens the immune system, which can, in turn, lead to various illnesses. It’s no wonder the Bible exhorts us to not let the sun go down on our anger (Ephesians 4:26).
