Chris Brown Advises Ray Rice - Get Help For Anger Management

Posted in: , ,

NFL player Ray Rice was laid off by his team, the Baltimore Ravens, and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after a leaked video showed him knocking out his then-fiancée (and now wife) Janay Rice. Adding to the drama was Janay speaking out in his defense.

A lot of people have been asked about the issue, or shared their thoughts on social media. The latest is Chris Brown, who answered a related question by Sway, an interviewer with MTV News.

Chris Brown faced his own hell of a public domestic violence incident with superstar girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Their case went to court and the singer later received 5 years probation that has lingered till date. He also had to do community service and take anger management classes.

Below, Chris speaks about anger, domestic violence and what's he's learnt are the consequences and triggers of domestic violence.

"I think it’s all about the choices you make. With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past – not knowing how to express myself verbally and, at the same time, not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are.

Help is great. I still talk to my therapist twice a week. It helps me...if I'm frustrated, if I'm dealing with something, to vent, to say what I'm going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person.

Who tells you, 'This is how you should react,’ or 'it’s good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go. It’s not supposed to stay there; you’re not supposed to keep it inside because it’ll bottle up and you’ll become a monster."

 "Dealing with my anger issues, understanding myself, the life I've been through and where I'm headed and where I want to be, it's really helped me to really focus.

"For somebody going through that situation or anybody dealing with it, it's all about the choices you make and how you control your anger.

"To Ray, or anybody else — because I’m not better than the next man — I can just say I’ve been down that road. I deal with situations and I’ve made my mistakes too, but it’s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself."
