Having a presiding judge or magistrate to condemn or reprimand you in some form or another has to be one of the most humiliating experiences that any one person has to go through. When being read the proverbial riot act in lieu of your poor public behavior there is no privacy. You are surrounded by people. And whether they are complete strangers or there are people in the courtroom that you know, they now know your business. Whether you have been accumulating unpaid parking fines over the last few years or whether your temper has been boiling over a lot more often, you should know, as an adult, better than most, that you could have avoided this.
But it is too late. The damage is done. But for many who have been subjected to attend court ordered anger management classes, it is just the beginning.
And it is all good. Whether they are sitting through group sessions or have the privilege of discreet one on one sessions with a qualified counselor, life only gets better. Soon, their anger management issues are a thing of the past. And not only are they smiling forthwith but so too are all those whom they may have offended or hurt, in some way or another. It need not have been physical, sometimes verbal abuse has the tendency to do even more harm, sometimes irreparably, sometimes for the long term.
If you find yourself in confrontational situations more often than you would think is humanely acceptable, not being able to control your temper, you need not wait to be summoned and ordered. You could volunteer yourself for anger management classes right now if you want. It only takes a few minutes.
