COM 225 2-17-09 Managing Anger Most frequently strategy for managing anger is suppression. We sit on it and bury it. The outcome of consistent suppression is chronic hostility. Chronic Hostility A near-constant state of arousal and negative thoughts High Hostility People Spend most of their waking hours in a state of thinly veiled anger (“simmering”) Have thoughts and perceptions dominated by the negative Possess a host of negative beliefs about human nature Trapped by their own negativity. Tend to be difficult, self-involved, demanding, and ungenerous. Grief Intense sadness following a substantial loss of something or someone important to you. Time does not heal grief. You eventually just learn how to deal with it. o Ex: Kelly’s backpack getting stolen and feeling grief over losing her thesis. Steve going to his grandma’s house and feeling grief over the current owner tearing down the house and changing the landscape of the lot.
