So devoted to the young and vapid demographic, I would stand in front of the bathroom mirror and practice the eighties version of the mad dog stare. The truth is that many teens don’t feel like they fit in during the tumultuous high school years. Luckily, in my twenties I had an epiphany, which led me to change my negative, brooding, fly-off-the-handle ways.
One day during a phone conversation, my friend Rachel made a comment that has stuck with me to this day. The good news is that regardless of where your anger originated (DNA, angry parents,or family members, childhood experiences, or lifestyle), there are practical tools available to manage your anger so it does not manage you.
I’d be remiss if I said that you’ll wake up tomorrow and feel like Calm Callie or Stress-free Steve. Because anger has built up over many years, you’re probably good at projecting it (“throwing” it onto others as a defense against feeling it for yourself)—and it will take time to change. The beautiful thing is that you have today, and today you can feel calm, collected, and in control of your emotions.
The following 5 tips, when practiced regularly, will replace negative reactions and lead to a more Zen-like you.
Practice deep breaths throughout this exercise, and take a break if the feelings become too intense.
Honestly, if I had to choose just one option to manage anger, it would be getting sufficient sleep. And adequate rest–I cannot say enough about how vital this is to our health and emotional well-being.
Amazing how we’re often able to help others see the destructive patterns of anger, before it sinks in for us.
Good luck with steps to control your anger–take it one step at a time and do what works for you. In my heart I have apologised though I am now afflicted with social anxiety is this related?
Social anxiety is tied to shame, and fears of losing control and being publicly humiliated.

I cared so much, in fact, that I buried the vulnerability and the emotional pain from feeling that I wasn’t in control of my life. I was blabbing on about how the car mechanic was overcharging me for a transmission repair. Unfortunately, it was a couple of years before I finally turned my back on angry outbursts. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. Set your alarm for fifteen minutes earlier (don’t worry—I’ll make it up on the backend in tip #5). Spend at least five minutes recording what, where, when, and around whom you feel most angry.
It’s nearly impossible to make calm, measured, responsible choices if you can barely keep your eyes open.
With daily commitment, practice, and patience, you’ll increase problem-solving abilities so you can manage your anger, rather than have your anger manage you.

One thing I’ve found super helpful regarding prioritizing is to make a list each day of just two things that need to get done. So glad the Universe sent you to this lovely, Zen place that Lori and others have so peacefully cultivated. I fell like my anger has been controlling me lately so I have been wanting to take steps to change that. I wrote letters telling others how their behaviour affected me and they were very pointed and nasty sometimes.
Often our memories are skewed, and we may ascribe more blame to ourselves than is necessary.


If others have contributed to these uncomfortable feelings, it’s possible that social anxiety would result. Linda’s suggestions may work for people with a mild anger problem but if your problem is serious you need a harder and deeper therapy which a good marital artist like my dear friend Steve can provide.

I was addicted to my anger and actually found it useful but it was also destructive of my core relationships. Pay attention to body temperature, clinched fists, heart rate, muscle tension, and butterflies in your stomach.
