Dr. Nice and Mr. Nasty
Anger is a topic about which much is written and said. Several of the stories in the Coping Skills series are designed to encourage us to look at the true source of our anger … ourselves. When we are angry, we typically look to a situation or to others as the cause of our anger. This is such an accepted notion that few question its validity.
But in our modern understanding of psychology, we now accept that our thinking is the cause of the emotional state we call anger. In this fable, Cosmos talks about how there is a "Dr. Nice" and a "Mr. Nasty" in each of us.
