Anger Control

Anger can create two situations, one is a form of feelings and the other is a form of hate or violence.

I believe we all agree the latter when turned into violence requires a physical action to protect you and your family, but the first has other implications.

It is interesting at times to revisit past quotes to see if there meanings still apply today.

"We hate some persons because we do not know them; and will not know them because we hate them". --Charles Caleb Colton.

"Anger is only one letter short of danger".-- Unknown.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great". -- Mark Twain.

"Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love". --Martin Luther King, Jr.

You might have noticed that the one thing all these quotes have in common is that anger leads to even more anger and a downward spiraling situation. It causes you to say things to people you love which cannot be taken back, only apologized for.

That's why we always stress the urgency for solutions sooner rather than later. Managing anger is a problem, but there are solutions that are available to you. Here is one you might have heard before:

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent". Eleanor Roosevelt.

There may be many things you can't control, but how you react is one thing under your command.

Will leave you with one more quote:

"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great". - Zig Ziggler

This is where you take over. Your action or inaction will determine how quickly you get anger and other problems behind you.
