Anger Management – Tips to Calm your Anger

We all know what anger is and what it feels like to be angry. Don’t we?

Anger is an emotion that is helpful when in control because it makes you aware of something wrong happening. Yet uncontrollable anger can harm you more than the person on whom it’s directed.

Many times we get angry over things that someone does. It’s possible that we may be triggered by certain people who we are unable to understand. The person whom we are upset with will be unaware of how we feel. What they do might have no connection with us. Perhaps they are acting with a good intention, but since it sets off our triggers we are unable to interpret the action positively.

How do we express our anger?

There are three ways in which we respond when we are angry.

  • We may lash out at the person who upset us.
  • We might be calm but clearly communicate our displeasure in a healthy way.

Through both the above ways we are able to express and take out our anger.

  • Another way to respond when we are angry is to withdraw from the person and sulk and harbor ill feelings about the person.

This response might do the angry person a lot more harm as with this response he or she is unable to express and has to suppress the anger. This is especially harmful and can even cause high blood pressure, hypertension or depression.

Is it really good, but to let lose our temper and let out our anger? We must be able to quickly overcome it without getting harming or hurting both the parties involved.
