The heart is warmed with the knowledge that there is no longer a need to suffer in anger. A classic rock song, once upon a time, made references to looking back in anger. Still to this day, far too many people, from all walks of life ‘look back in anger’. Instead of positively looking forward to what tomorrow may bring them, they harbor regrets for all the mistakes they made in the past. And so it goes that the frustration grows until it can no longer be held. And the angry man, or woman, bursts like a dangerous volcano.
Today, it is written into law that physical and verbal onslaughts of anger are punishable offences. This does not mean, however, that the angry offender is to be condemned to a jail term (although in the most extreme cases, particularly where murder is the outcome, this will be the case). The heart is warmed that rather than condemn the poor angry man or woman, every effort from the judge’s bench to the online counselor is made to help that poor fellow or girl. Speaking of which, those who need the help are spared some humiliation in the sense that they can attend online anger management courses instead.
This is a discreet and private alternative to having to attend counseling sessions in person or within a group. Such sessions are not always easy to manage from community centers usually located in areas indicative of communities classed on the lower rungs of the socio-economic ladder. The rich and famous also need to attend anger management courses, whether decreed by the court or through a moral undertaking. For them, it cannot ever be easy to attend such therapy sessions in settings far removed from what they are accustomed to.
