A man who does not get angry is a dangerous man. It is impossible to never feel anger, to never get angry is to suppress the emotion. Bottling things inside only ever leads to one outcome.. an explosion as the bottle can no longer take the pressure.
I understand now, the key is not about never allowing yourself to get angry, it’s recognising the emotion and releasing it in the right way to avoid an explosive build up. It’s not about releasing it on to someone else, as the cycle will just continue unless they themselves are aware enough to not bring about an reaction. It’s about responding to your anger, responding to your frustrations in the right way.
An impulsive person doesn’t act from the conscious mind but the unconscious.
They say stress can make you unwell and it’s true, it’s the same for anger. A build up of negative emotions eventually start to manifest into the physical in the form of various conditions. We have to learn how to release these negative feelings. Exercise, sing, write do anything to bring about a switch in your emotion, do whatever works for you.
Our emotions do not have to control us to the point where we are being tossed around living in turmoil alongside our up and down emotions. Emotions can fluctuate from day to day hour to hour, emotions are feelings in motion we just have to learn how to navigate them.
Certain emotions such as anger and sadness are not always a bad thing as long as we respond in the right way sometimes these feelings are trying to tell us something.
Possessed by your own unconscious repressed subconscious this is what we call rage. Anger should never turn into rage. Becoming aware of our emotions is the first step, responding in the right way is the second.
