Deal With Anger or Your Anger Will Deal With You!
People have a way sometimes that can get under our skin and make us angry (or I should say we allow them to make us angry). It is very normal to become irritated or very mad at times.
But the important thing is what I do with our anger is the question that needs to be addressed. Being prepared ahead of time in a spiritual way, and also physically taking care of one’s self with regular exercise, healthy food, enough sleep all will significantly reduce any major outbursts and loss of ability to be in control of one’s self.
I have learned over the years that most of the things that I have gotten upset about were not that significant in hindsight. I have learned how to deal with anger that before used to cause trouble in my life. ~ Bill Greguska
Stop Anger Before it Starts!
Ask God to Help You!
Keep in mind that if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it, which includes anger. I, too, have struggled with anger and having patience, as far back as I can remember. Natural consequences have forced me to learn and re-learn how important having patience is – the hard way, due to natural consequences. How many of you have had to do the same thing in your life?
We have all made our personal mistakes in life, but that is no reason to give up hope. Patience is something many American people struggle with in our microwave and instant-everything society. We need to learn how to change that! Several things play a part just, our fundamental human nature, technology like the computer, microwave, cell phones, as well as the way we are wired to want what we want when we want it. Try taking things one day at a time and do not get discouraged by any setbacks you might meet along the way.
I have learned that when I have made knee-jerk decisions in the past, the results were not always the best or the way I hoped they would be. Maturity and having patience go together, although learning patience as early as possible in life helps to avoid a lot of major problems in the future. I also have learned – from past experiences – through stress management that well thought out decisions that are not impulsive usually make things turn out more favorably. The best way to take care of your anger problem is to deal with your anger with prayer. You will be definitely on your way to calm your anger by putting these principles into practice. ~ Bill Greguska
