You know, the first step is admitting it.
I've had/have anger issues also.
I was surrounded by complete morons, who knew how to push my buttons, and make me lash out.
This time last year I realised my anger was hurting my self more than anyone else.
I had to do some sole searching and stubled across a Buddah quote:
"Holding on to anger is like holding on to a hot coal, with the intention of throwing it at somebody else, the longer you grasp it, the more you will
And I've tried to implement that ever since.
I've lost my temper once since last year, and I haven't returned to the surroundings that I know will encourage that emotion.
Todays the day of reckoning, as I have to return there now.
I'm sure ill do fine, its about having the confidence, and more importantly the *trust* in your self.
After all, I can't run from it for ever. As Rafiki from the Lion King said: "the past can hurt, but you can run from it, or learn from it".
Decide what the negative influence in your life is, cut it out, contemplate it, and face it.
I've been a much happier person, taking my self out of those negative surroundings.
