How do you manage your anger? in public places?

Do you hide it or let it show? There are some people who shout in public places because they got angry with someone else and there are others who just walk away or keep silent about it, trying to hide their feelings. Where do you belong?

i dont care much about gaining weight. and besides, as long as it can loosen up my anger, why not.

That's ok then, anyway when we are angry we don't care much of anything.

hi jonaida! how i manage mg anger? well, most of the time i keep silent and try to think why it happened and how it happened. i try to understand the reasons behind the anger and weigh things through because the last thing i want to happen is to make things worse. however, if i can't really contain my emotions, i confront the person as calm as i can be and if we really can't talk things out, i would give it some time and space. and if the person whom i got so angry with is really hopeless and so immature then i would just ignore that person for the time being and let time heal all wounds.

That's also a good idea, it works with some situations.

you're right! different folks, different strokes! though it works with me, it doesn't mean it will work for other people. thanks and have a nice day!

I usually hold my anger because I know people will not like me if I get mad...I do it not just because i am in public places, it's because I am being careful not to hurt anyone! oftentimes. I hide my anger but i'm just human with limitations...

That's probably the best reason not to do it even not in public... no to hurt someone. I believe that anger is just a flare of emotion.

One of the three or all the three have occured. If i am provked when i am entirely amongst a new people i would just walk away. If sometimes in places like office,where we regularly go, but still its a public place, and similarly if i am provoked i try to avoid them,but if they still try to make a fun of me, and will just give vent to my feelings.

It's good to let our angers our sometimes to make us feel better but as much as possible not in public places, walking away is still an option. I think that doing it in public is caused by something that really stirred it.

I try my best to manage it in public by taking a deep breath, get some bottled water and bear in mind that I should take care of my reputation. Anyway, controlling my anger is something so difficult to do because I am the type who says anything I want with out reservation.

It's really hard to take control of it esp with that attitude. It's good thing you have a good reason to manage your anger.

If someone gets angry with me, I often feel like getting angry with them. I feel like I'm being tortured and would hide myself from that person. I often keep my madness to myself, but if it gets out of hand with that person, I will most likely show it.

It's not a good idea to keep it all inside, sometimes you just have to let it go...

Well I would rather pick just walk away. It's really doesn't give a good if showing anger in public. And some peoples said that "Heart may Hot, But Mind still Cold"
