If you seem angry often, and your anger seems to be out of control and impacting your loved ones, you might be having anger issues. There are three types of anger: aggressive, passive and assertive and the best way around it is to take a stroll when you're angry.

In this list you will find pearls of wisdom like, "Anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die" and, "Anger is one letter away from danger." Anger Management is not only good for you but also has a positive impact on those closest to you.
