Anger. I have been doing research on anger for a long time now. I grew up in a typical Irish family where anger was a given. In my family you fight or you die. While growing up I tried every way I could to avoid this monster from what I would call the red lagoon. Red representing anger. So it was not until a few years ago that I discovered that stuffing the anger was not a very smart thing to do as I saw it as trying to sit on a ball under water. It will pop up somewhere.
It was not until I starting taking psychology classes at college that I learned of the many different faces of anger. And it was not until I found a christian psychiatrist who said that that anger should not be your enemy but a friend. Then I started looking at some other christian shrinks and they all seemed to make more sense than the stuff I was getting from my text books and professors.
