Human psychology is based on logic, love, mental horizons and emotions. Since every soul is unique so there is a great possibility of conflicts in your day to day dealings. Sometimes these conflicts lead you to serious brawls which are sometimes unavoidable hence trigger your anger. How to manage your anger? Here are some suggestions:
1- Remember the fact the words spoken once cannot be recalled. When in rage, the tongue works faster than mind so there is a chance that you will have to regret what you have spoken. Your reactive approach may harm other person even if you were right at first. You might be forgiven but they will not forget what you said in anger as it is human psychology to remember what was said during the hard talks. So speak carefully. Your tongue sometimes act as a sword which can break the heart. Keep in mind that broken hearts are hard to cure!
2- Leave the place of brawl and go to a peaceful location. Then carefully audit yourself if there was a genuine reason for being angry? You might be wrong. In fact every can be wrong at any time. You are not an angel; you are human. Humans make mistake. These mistakes are valuable as long as you learn from them. So do the self-audit first and then judge others, you will easily conclude the root cause of the situation. Sometimes you need analytical skills to judge yourself.
3- Sometimes you are angry for a specific event happening or conversation and sometimes you are angry persistently because the same situation is happening repeatedly. This cyclic happening is dangerous as it is draining your brain continuously and adding negative impact on your psychology. Get to the root of this issue and try to fix.
