Lately I was having a conversation with my close friend and something came up that made me angry. My anger if comes out is real bad. Today, I bursted yet to a lesser degree I tried hard to control instead of speaking bitter words since I knew I was reacting out of anger which is not healthy. I have been trying to control from quite sometime and I do feel better. It helps to stop me from saying wrong and bitter words and thus helps the other person as well. What about you? If angry, how do you respond? Suggest me with some more things too.

i can still control my temper but when the magma overflows, i can be the deadliest volcano to erupt.

@shubhu3 self-control should always be practiced, right?

That's good. It helps to avoid saying anything bitter.

When I am angry, I try to say nothing, you could say words that you will regret in the future.

When I am angry, I try to control my anger because I know once would spoken cannot be taken back.

@shubhu3 I divert my attention to control my anger. For example - I would walk out of scene to make me cool down.

I like to say something before I'm angry. Because once I'm angry sometimes I'm not very nice

As much as possible, I conceal my feelings not to worsen the situation. If things are boiling into out of control, I just need to excuse myself and find ways to cool down.

@shubhu3 It was not easy, my friend. But it takes a lot of time to control oneself of being in rage moment.

When I got very angry I divert my anger to things around me. I will slam the door or push all the chairs and table. Sometimes I will just go away for a while to forget my angry feelings

Okay. Walking is a good way to shut down bitterness that can come out of anger. One of my friends also slams the door.

I try to be thoughtful, but sometimes it is better to express your anger and not keep it bottled up. Maybe boxing or running until you feel better? That way no one gets hurt, and there is a health benefit for you!

I just have to remember the words of Dr. Abraham A. Low, "Temper is infantile," and that keeps my temper in check.

It's good if you were able to control your anger. Just remember, whatever you say, in anger or otherwise, can never, EVER be taken back. Even if you apologise, the words have been spoken and can't be retracted.
