"I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. " These are the lines quoted from the poem '' A Poison Tree " by William Blake. When we are angry with a friend,usually we talk about it and the anger goes away. But when we are angry with a person who is not a close friend,we keep it bottled inside and the resentment builds up. We should communicate our anger if we are to deal with it. Has such a situation happened in your life when you have avoided talking about the matter that made you angry and you have alienated that person for ever? Do you think early communication of anger is the best way to deal with it?

If I'm angry at somebody I don't have a close relationship with, I just let it go and never talk to the person. I will forget that after awhile. I don't have hatred in my heart. I may never speak with the person again, but I don't keep grudges.

I have always been angry before with my foes but i tend to forget about it and communicate to them like nothing bad happened. The worst of all is being angry with your work colleagues. This is one thing I do not encourage. Your work colleagues are the people you are with the longest hours of the day so I hate being angry with a work colleagues.
