Don't lose your mind and manners to anger.

Summary: Many a time, anger surfaces in case of injustice, humiliation, and perhaps mistreatment by others or when you are wronged and accused of no fault of yours.

Jayashree Kulkarni

Like any other emotion, anger and resentment often convey a message. It suggests that something upsetting, unjust or unsavory is affecting one's mood or behaviour. It is quite normal and, in fact, healthy to express anger but it should be done with civility. It is unhealthy when people lose their senses, mannerism and when it gets explosive and goes out of control. Suppressing anger is equally bad as it contributes to even greater levels of inter-personal conflict and animosity among family and friends.

Many a time, anger surfaces in case of injustice, humiliation, and perhaps mistreatment by others or when you are wronged and accused of no fault of yours. But immediate pushback reaction often gives rise to a whole lot of other issues. Losing your cool, screaming or yelling doesn't solve issues. We should instead explore the reason behind our rage - identify whether we are (in any way) responsible for that unpleasant situation. Learn how can you avoid people who trigger such situations. Developing conflict resolution skill and finding ways to express your feelings are great ways to channel your anger. Control your anger before anger controls you.
