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.
