There are so many talk and reality shows on television that feed the anger monster. I guess it is supposedly entertaining to see people being deeply upset with each other. To what extent does our seeing this kind of “entertainment” affect how we view our own anger and how we express that anger to others?

You raise an important point for us all. ??We might be witnessing a shift in our American culture, and anywhere else where such “entertainment” is exported, in this way: ??heated expressions of anger might be seen now as more acceptable than in decades past. ??If that is the case, then perhaps our norms are shifting so that expressing and harboring intense anger is seen as more acceptable. ??Research shows that deep and abiding anger is not healthy for the one who has this nor for those who receive it. ??We need to realize that toxic/unhealthy/intense and abiding anger is not healthy and not acceptable. ??Forgiveness is one way of reducing and even eliminating this kind of anger.
