Controlling your anger . . . .

We've all been there, right? We've all felt anger either as an annoyance or a full-fledged rage. It's completely normal, and it can be a good thing! It can give you a way to express negative feelings, for example, or motivate you to find solutions to problems. However, the sad irony with anger is that it's always expressed in an attempt to correct or rectify a situation, yet it often ends up doing the exact opposite. Excessive anger can worsen the situation. It can get out of control and turn destructive! It's always a good idea to remember to direct your anger towards the problem, not the people, and to focus your energy on reaching an agreement. 

Remember, you can't eliminate anger - and it wouldn't be a good idea if you could. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you anger; and sometimes it will most certainly be justifiable. Life will be filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. Controlling your angry responses can keep them from making you even more unhappy in the long run. If you hold on to resentments, anger will never disappear. Learn to let go of resentment, and watch how you begin to ease into a more peaceful state. 

"Speak when you are angry,
and you'll make the best speech
you'll ever regret."
-Dr. Laurence J. Peter

    has made mention of My name. It is the most natural and healthful material for
    our skin and can keep our skin as well as our hair moisture and shiny.
    A similar situation existed with the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, where the majority who
    elected him may indeed have been led by a spirit, but it was definately not the
    Holy Spirit.
