I used to think I was good at managing my anger, so I didn't understand why my husband asked me to talk to him. I thought I did talk to him. I just got quiet when I got angry. It's better than exploding like my husband did, right?
Well, after reading this book, I learned my way of "managing" anger was just as troublesome as the way my husband's. I fall in the anger style of what the author calls passive-aggressive. After reading this book, I begin to see how stressful it had been for my husband to live with me. I now also know why my career had bumped into so many relational troubles.
If I knew there were other ways of managing anger, I think my relationship with my husband would have been much better and my career would have been more successful than what it is now. I cannot change the past, but I can make efforts for the future, so I will work on improving my anger management style following exercises and assignments in this book.
A GREAT READ.. AND COMES AS A HIGH RECOMMEND FROM ME..
