Let it out by screaming then you are less likely to let it out in other forms like aggression or passive aggression to others. Or yourself.
So fight it by being in n control of how and when it is released, suppressing it just builds it up for an uncontrolled explosion
Should Rage Be Controlled?
Just as an erupting volcano wreaks havoc on those living around it, so too a person who expresses intense anger harms those living around him. He also critically damages himself. In what way? “Acting on anger leads to even more aggression,” states The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). According to research, men who manifest anger “are more likely to be dead by age 50 than those who do not.”
The American Heart Association similarly states: “Men who experience outbursts of anger have twice the risk of stroke as men who control their tempers.” These warnings are relevant to both sexes.
What advice really works? Notice the similarities between the advice of secular authorities and that of the most widely distributed authority on human relations, the Bible.
Manage Anger—Avoid Rage
Dr. Redford B. Williams states in JAMA: “The simplistic advice, ‘when angry, let it out,’ is unlikely . . . to be of much help. Far more important is to learn how to evaluate your anger and then to manage it.” He suggests asking yourself: “(1) Is this situation important to me? (2) Are my thoughts and feelings appropriate to the objective facts? (3) Is this situation modifiable, so that I don’t have to have this anger?”
Proverbs 14:29; 29:11: “He that is slow to anger is abundant in discernment, but one that is impatient is exalting foolishness. All his spirit is what a stupid one lets out, but he that is wise keeps it calm to the last.”
Ephesians 4:26: “Be wrathful, and yet do not sin; let the sun not set with you in a provoked state.”
Frank Donovan, in his book Dealing With Anger—Self-Help Solutions for Men, recommends: “Escaping anger—or, more specifically, escaping the scene and other people in your angry episode—is a strategy which has special importance and value at the higher levels of anger.”
Proverbs 17:14: “The beginning of contention is as one letting out waters; so before the quarrel has burst forth, take your leave.”
Bertram Rothschild, writing in the journal The Humanist, states: “Anger . . . is primarily one’s personal responsibility. The reasons to become angry exist in our heads. . . . The few times anger worked for you pale in comparison to the multitude of times it made things worse. It is far better not to produce the anger than to experience it.”
Psalm 37:8: “Let anger alone and leave rage; do not show yourself heated up only to do evil.” [whereislogic: screaming in anger in public would show yourself heated up; but it's best to let anger alone alltogether, if anger makes you scream, in public or in private, you've already lost your calm, see earlier quotation regarding the advice of keeping it calm until the last]
Proverbs 15:1: “An answer, when mild, turns away rage, but a word causing pain makes anger to come up.”
Proverbs 29:22: “A man given to anger stirs up contention, and anyone disposed to rage has many a transgression.”
