Making Sense of “Irrational” Anger

It’s always exciting to come across an article I wish I’d written myself. This week’s post from Leon F. Seltzer, Ph.D. is one of those gems.

There’s always a reason for the way you feel. And no, it’s not that you’re being irrational or making a big deal about nothing.

This article explains how to deal with someone else’s anger in such a way that you help them understand their feelings, while also helping yourself not to be triggered by them.
