Have you ever tried to read yourself?
Do you ever read your anger or just react?

How do you react whenever you get angry?
Similarly, how do you react to other feelings?

I try to respond rather than react. If I find there is anger arising I will take great care not to react, but instead try to understand where the anger is coming from but firstly respond in a way that difuses the anger. I then try to work out why the anger arose and with the awareness that the anger was created by me, work out why and deal with it.

We all deal with anger issues in our own way based upon our personality and the fight or flight mode. However, in an ideal world of using diplomacy to resolve conflict and anger is best but, it's not always going to work with some personalities. How we react to various situations and personalities how we contain our anger some just can't and insist the only way to express their issues they must fight and be loud verbally and or physically abusive which if it comes to that often one party ends up in jail while the other party plays the victim card.

Wars perpetrated by two leaders from two different nations who can't get along. If only they would resolve their issues in a boxing match millions would not have to die. Often times during the Roman empire two gladiators would fight for a piece of a** from a girl usually the emperor's daughter or some girl of importance usually out of jealousy. Today people are not that much different. Men and women still fight over each other for approval. Everyone gets mad and often cut off relationships never to be reconciled.

How we cope or deal with the anger, and how we deal with resentment, and jealousy, envy all these things that break people we react to our understanding of things. Two people or several have different views to the same problem. We can choose to compromise or walk away. Often people must walk away because as insanity dictates doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result will not help anyone.

Should we remain angry at the other party or blame the other party when it takes two to tango? Often to diffuse we must account for our part of problem in relationships. We also have to realize when enough is enough.

When I get angry, I move away from there until the anger subsides completely.
I respond only after the anger subsides, because whenever I have responded in anger, it gets converted into react.

You've had years of practice I reckon, it can be difficult at times for me anyway, but walking away seems to be the thing to do..

I try to observe my breath until the irritable feelings subside. it's a meditation technique.
But some feelings cannot be calmed down easily.

It is easy for me to control anger but it is very difficult to control fear. Meditation technique is also not able to calm it down quickly.

Yes, I am putting more effort into it, but sometimes the red mist appears, not that often I may add, mostly when I am being brow beaten by hypocrites handshake

Now is as good a time as any to apologize for calling you a f*cking traitor. Even if you were it's today's late-stage culture of self-annihilation I should be angry with.

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

Decent_Love: How do you control your irritating emotions?
I was born patient ( something to do with culture)
There is great Chinese proverb :
"A moment of patience can prevent a great disaster and a moment of impatience can ruin a whole life"

And it so simple just walk away or to turn off computer. Just make yourself busy with something else.

The only difference between humans and animals is that humans can control their irritating emotions whereas animals cannot.

When an animal is angry, it cannot control its anger and fights, whereas a human can control its anger and stop the fight.

Sometimes even a human is not able to control his irritable emotions and he behaves like an animal and he harm others.
