Anger, a strong feeling of hostility, is a completely natural human emotion. But when it gets out of control, the results can be destructive.
Since the beginning of time, or ever since humans walked on the face of the Earth, anger has played a major role in disrupting Mother Nature’s tranquility. Because of anger, many untimely deaths have occurred, many promising and personal relationships between loving couples have been permanently ruined, children have been left parentless, and family members have suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
To solve this age-old anger problem, there are countless amounts of anger management programs out there trying to help angry people take control of their anger before any more unnecessary destruction occurs. But while a few hotheads are momentarily being cooled down by this government-regulated method, many of them are still walking around like giant time bombs waiting to explode.
But the key to controlling anger begins at childhood, when a child's first signs of anger are being displayed. Once you eliminate that early habit of allowing anger to get its way, you discourage its need to take control. Because once anger has taken control, the struggle to control it becomes extremely difficult.
1. The first thing to do is to identify what anger is, and when you are behaving in an angry way, say with all honesty, “I will not behave in an angry way. I am calm.”
2. You might've been provoked to anger, so the next step is to leave the person that angered you, or leave the area where you were angered.
3. In your new environment, minus all the drama, take deep breaths, and eliminate your anger every time you exhale.
4. Do something positive that you like doing, like exercising, meditating, or even playing video games. Whatever it is that you like doing, do it, and turn your negative situation into a positive one.
