I too, would like to commend you for admitting that you have an anger issue! That is the very first step to healing yourself. At only 12 years old, I
was so depressed and angry at the world that I tried to take my own life. Thankfully, I am still alive today. What is acceptable, is the fact that we
have anger. What is not acceptable is how we represent that anger. It all has to do with impulse control and not physically acting on it unless it is
in a positive way.
After many years suffering with such fiery anger, I learned how to cope. This is what I ask you to do. Although we cannot see anger, it truly is as
real as you are. There are two energies that dwell in our minds, one is a positive force, while the other is negative. I like to explain it like this:
Imagine a fish tank full of both gold fish and minnows. Let's say the gold fish are positive energies and the minnows are negative. In your
tank(mind), there are hundreds of minnows, but only four gold fish. Since these breeds stick with their own, obviously, everytime you reach into that
tank, it is more likely than not that you will end up catching the minnows(negative energy) but not the gold fish(positive energy). This is why your
reactions everyday are always consisting with anger.
So how do you fill the tank with more gold fish to balance it all out? It is simple really. The more positive things you do, say and watch, the more
you will fill your mind with positive energies. Each day you practice this concept, the more gold fish you will have in the tank. Over time, your gold
fish over run the minnows, your mind will be filled with positive energies and will overrun the negative. Your negative reactions to anger and your
anger will diminish drastically. This worked for me!
Let me explain how I got over these anger issues. First, I began thinking about the good things in my life. I had my health, a home and friends.
Second, avoid others who are always negative. Negative energy is so powerful, it WILL bring you back to where you started. Third, I frequently go on
youtube and watch America's Funniest video's, and many other videos I can find online. I rent comedy movies, I try to joke about every situation I
Another great thing to do and I feel is the most important, Help others and expect nothing in return. I cannot tell you how great I feel going
shopping for gifts for needy children. I take my children to local shelters and we pass out gifts to kids. The smiles on their face gives us a rush of
joy and it makes us feel good about ourselves.
Finally, accept anger and realize that it is a normal part of being human. It isn't a bad thing as long as you direct it in a positive direction. If
you feel you need therapy, do not hesitate to go. You will learn a lot about yourself. You may even figure out what is causing it. Sometimes, we just
need to let go of the past and accept the wrongs that were done against us. Remember, noone can make you angry! Only you have the power to ALLOW
others to anger you.
