Have you ever felt uncontrollable anger? The kind of anger where you feel like just breaking something – but you don’t actually break anything, you just get angry enough to. It’s natural to get angry at times, after all it’s a part of being human. But like all other feelings, it’s important to be able to control it so that we do not hurt or harm neither ourselves nor other people. At worst, the consequences can be big. The thought of losing important people in one’s life because one struggles to control anger can be a very serious consequence. If you think that you are struggling with feelings like anger and do not feel that you are able to master it in a healthy way, it may be time to consider getting professional help.
According to humanistic thinking, the present is more important and more significant than both the past or the future. Therefore, it is more useful to explore what can be done here and now, instead of making decisions based on what might happen in the future or to constantly dwell on past experiences, such as what if something hadn ́t happened or why did it happen?
The perception of you having control over the present is important to master challenges in everyday life

Mentalization provides meaning and context to shifting self states. It puts one into perspective of one’s life history and one’s judgement of other people and interpersonal interactions, now and in the future.
Mentalization theory promotes mentalization as the most important ability of the self. The ability to mentalize supplies the self with cohesion. Without mentalization, the individual is subject to shifting and disconnected self states governed by chance external (and internal) events. This ultimately leads to a total lack of control of oneself and others and life in general
