Using Anger to Take Control
Here’s a new and interesting concept that you may not have thought of. Anger is a signal that you may be out of control. Angry feelings may mean it’s time to take control of your emotions. The power of rage is that you can use its energy and mold that energy to help you can develop important personal qualities such as patience, resilience, humility, and determination.
Think about the lack of emotional control in a baby or child. The outbursts, tantrums, and emotional reactions seem directly proportionate to the baby or child’s complete lack of control of their own situation. When we’re young, we are entirely dependent on others to get our needs met. We must rely on our parents and caregivers to provide everything, and it is difficult and frustrating.
It’s also interesting to note that with age and independence comes wisdom. So if you hope to rid yourself of anger so you can feel more in control of your own life, you’re on the right path.
Frustrated feelings can motivate us toward forward leaps in our life and personal development.
This has to do with gaining life experience, developing self-control, increasing independence, and relying less on other people to deliver what you yourself can provide to yourself. In doing so, you can experience total self-satisfaction and feel more in control of your own life.
When you reach where you need to be at a given phase of life, you’re bound to feel less angry and instead, peaceful and satisfied with how far you’ve come.
How to Channel and Redirect Anger
You can also control your own emotions which in turn will make you feel like you’re no longer at the mercy of others. Once you realize that you can approach life situations in a spirit of compromise, conflict resolution, and negotiation, you will waste a lot less time and your relationships will go much more smoothly.
Being able to relate with others more easily will greatly reduce stress levels and you will also likely be able to let go of the past problems that have caused you to suffer in silent anger for possibly many years of your life.
