Jay Begay on Anger Management

Anger Management by Jay Begay

Back in Arizona, our youth group did an anger management workshop led by our youth missioner Kaze Gadway. I just found the warning signs that we learned. I remember that I had to fight against Warning Sign 3. I used to feel hurt when things didn’t go my way. Then I would make excuses on hating the other person. That was only six years ago.  What a journey I have been on. I think we need to look at these signs again. Which one do you get trapped in?

Warning Sign 1:  trapped

I know that I am in trouble when I start believing that fighting is the only way out of trouble.

Warning Sign 2:  unexpressed anger

I know that I am in trouble when I push everything down inside and pretend that I am not angry

Warning Sign 3:  Got to Have It My Way

I know that I am in trouble when I believe that I have to have everything go the way I want whether I am right or not.

Warning Sign 4:  Pushing Others Around

I know that I am in trouble when I begin manipulating and threatening people to do what I want

Warning Sign 5:   Being Alone

I know that I am in trouble when I isolate myself and withdraw into my own little world.
