The keys to distinguishing healthy and unhealthy anger are these:
1. Are you in control of that anger or is it controlling you (with a strong temper, for example, or making you and others miserable)? If you are in control, this is good.
2. Has the anger continued for weeks or longer? If so, it likely is unhealthy anger.
3. Are others giving you feedback that your anger is inappropriate? If this message comes from a reliable source, then it may be time to reﬂect on that anger possibly being unhealthy.
