How do you control your temper?

Temper is just like electricity. It should be controlled. If uncontrolled, it can do harm that can never be recalled and certainly contributes nothing in our personality development. A sharp tongue that carries a hurtful barb, that applies the needle in nasty comments. No one likes it--no one will become loving and helpful friend because of it. So why not "cut it out" and throw it away. How do you control your temper?

I have short temper. Some times it will not controlled. If I want to control this I just sitdown in one place silently. At that time I am not talking with any one. If I controlled this it will be under controlled by me.

When ever I get angry,I try to control it. I could control my temper by distracting from the fact which is troubling me. I prefer listening to music,or gossiping with friends in phone.

You know what when I am really feeling mad or I feel the world is tumbling down, I go to church and ask for more strength and patience.I also ask fo guidance to God. I don't wanna talk to anyone cause I don't wanna hurt anyone. Maybe when I mellow down and I could think what is right, that is the time I tell what I feel. Have a nice day!
