" Control Your Anger, It's Only One Letter Away From Danger"~Unknown
How does this quote make you feel? This brings up so many times I wasted time on these emotions. Is it possible not to be in these spaces? Am not sure, it's not been my experience.
In life, we need to learn how to manage these emotions. Why, think about the benefits to your
mental and physical health. I have learned that you need to meet people where they are in certain situations. Of course, each situation is different, however, you can learn how to control these emotions.
Let's talk about Anger. Anger can go from 1 to 100 in a split second. In this split second so much can go wrong. One way to manage these emotions is to take a deep breath, walk away and do your best to take control of your emotions. This will help you to identify the triggers that cause your anger and give you the space to think about how to respond instead of reacting. You can also use this time to find healthier ways to express your emotions such as talking to someone or writing down your thoughts.
Practicing mindfulness can also be a great tool to help manage emotions. Taking time to focus on the present moment and your thoughts, feelings, and sensations can help to reduce stress and increase self-awareness. It can also give you the space to process difficult feelings more constructively.
Never allow anger to take over where you are at the point of no control.
