Anger is expressed in countless ways and how you express your anger can rob even the happiest couples of their peaceful union.

The more intense your anger, the more likely the emotion will distract you from the issue at hand. Boundaries prevent you from going too far. They warn you when your anger is out of bounds.

Understanding how to manage your anger during an argument and establish a mutual understanding can help you work through issues during tough arguments.

A Powerful strategy to help manage and establish anger boundaries in your relationship is: Stay focused.

Action Tip: Try to remain in control of your anger by staying focused on what you are angry about. Keep your eye on the ball, and your conversation and emotions are less likely to get out of control.

When you speak out in anger, you may lose sight of the issue or circumstance that initially provoked you. Your anger heads off on a tangent, jumping from one grievance to another. What begins as, “I asked you to stop at the store for me, and you forgot,” suddenly evolves into, “You never help out around here. You don’t listen to me. You don’t care about me at all. I don’t know why I’m with you in the first place!”

Many of my anger-management clients describe horrific incidents involving anger. When I ask what started the angry exchange they say, “Beats me. All I know is one minute we were having a civil conversation and the next minute I was yelling..”

By staying focused, you will be amazed at how much your communications improve and how quickly you get back to having a healthy, happy relationship.
