Anger Management - November 29th 2010, 05:20 PM

I've always suffered from having a short temper or being quick to anger. For the most part as I've got older I've learned to control it, but I'm still struglling with what happens afterwards.

I don't tend to get angry at a lot things, such as the hand life deals you or bumping into a table or silly things like that, but I still have issues when people are verbally distrespectful to me on a personal level or treat me like an idiot.

Things like taking deep breaths don't seem to work and serve simply to wind me up more - as does someone telling me to calm down.

So I've learnt to remove myself from the situation or bite my tounge, which I'm pretty good at doing now even though people seem to have caught on that when I go quiet something is wrong. However, once everything is over I often feel an overwhelming sense of sadness and the anger doesn't dissapear it just feels distant and seems to fuel the sadness.

I understand shouting back or striking out isn't socially acceptable and I've learnt that there is no point in taking anger out elsewhere by breaking things. So why do I come away feeling like I've done the wrong thing, like I wish I had hit someone or whatever other course of action I wanted to take?

I just don't understand how if I'm doing everything right, why do I still feel angry and why do I feel so sadened by my choice of action?

We are taught never to shed tears, for to shed tears means that you have been defeated by emotion and that simple act of crying proves, without question, that negative emotions are nothing but a burden.

Anger Management deals with managing his anger so that minimal damage is considered self, others and the environment. It's about understanding your pattern of anger and deal with them effectively. One who can control his own anger effectively can possibly manage others angry.
