How Can I Control My Temper Right Now

Deal with your anger or your anger will deal with you! NeedEncouragement.comHow Do You Not Lose Your Temper?

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. Maturity and having patience go together, although learning patience as early as possible in life helps avoid many significant 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. One of the best ways to deal with your anger problem is to deal with your stress with prayer.


Often Anger creeps in when we do not get what we want or need! Don’t get too hungry, angry, lonely, or tired – H.A.L.T. You will be on your way to calming yourself by implementing these principles. ~ Bill Greguska


How To Deal With A Partner’s Anger Problem?



Ask God To Help You Control Your Temper!Think before you speak!

Remember that if God brings you to it, He will carry you through it, including anger. I have also struggled with my anger and patience as far back as I can remember. Natural consequences have forced me to learn and re-learn how crucial having patience is – the hard way due to natural effects. How many of you have had to do this? 


We have all made our mistakes in life, but that is no reason to give up hope. Many American people struggle with patience within our microwave and instant-everything society. We need to learn how to change that! A couple of main things play a part in contributing to our natural bent to anger, such as 1. Our fundamental human sinful nature. 2. Technology like the computer and microwave, cell phones, and how we, in our society, are mostly all wired, in the way that we want, what we want, when we want it, in a way similar to little children.


A solution is to take things one day at a time and not get discouraged by any setbacks you might meet along the way. ~ Bill Greguska
