aggressionAggression

What is it? Aggression is that feeling that makes a person want to frighten or hurt someone else. All of us have been so angry at one time or another that we felt like bashing someone in the face. But most of us don't act out those feelings 'cause we know how to control ourselves. We also know that violence isn't cool.

Aggressive people don't like themselves very much. Because they feel so lousy about themselves they may try to pick fights, intimidate (scare), threaten, or bully other people.

It's Not Only About Fighting. Sometimes instead of physically fighting, aggressive people go around arguing with everyone. Or they refuse to cooperate. Or they mess up other people's property. Or steal stuff. Or just find it impossible to get along with anybody.

Extreme aggression usually gets people in trouble with authority figures (parents, teachers, principals, police) and makes their lives difficult.

What To Do. If you feel you are aggressive and out of control:

  • Get some help!
  • Talk to any adult you can trust. (A teacher, a mental health professional, a school counselor, etc.)
  • There are things that you can do to change your behavior and channel your energy into positive outcomes!
