I made it clear to my clients each time am counseling them that the purpose of this book was not to teach them how to get rid of anger because it’s impossible but you can learn how to control your anger and set yourself free from emotional imprisonment.
As I told them, nobody will ever reach the place of not having emotions of anger. Nobody will ever reach a point in life of not experiencing a wide variety of feelings. No matter how hard you and I may try, we will always have to deal with the emotion of anger, jealousy, fear, depression, which causes many people a lot of guilt and condemnation. The reason is because they have the false idea that as a Christian or Muslim we are never to get angry.
When we get angry, the only thing we shouldn’t do is allowing our emotions to get rid of us, instead we should learn to manage and control our emotions in the proper way.
It seems that the majority of people are either emotional or emotionless. What is really needed is balance – the ability to show emotions when they are either positive and helpful, and to control anger when they are negative and destructive. I know what I went through so I wouldn’t want others to go through the same thing that’s why I decided to create a solution to this imprisonment called ‘’anger’’.
