  1. I agree that we should control our behavior. But I don’t believe we can — or should — try to control whether we get angry in the first place.

    Anger is a healthy response to a perception of injustice, and there is a great deal of injustice in the world.

    Instead of demonizing our anger, we can immerse ourselves safely in the emotion internally, and use the freed-up energy (which would otherwise be used to suppress the anger) to choose better behavior.

    I call this process “constructive wallowing.” It allows us to have the feelings we have and still behave in ways that invite success.

    • Thanks for your comment Tina. There are a lot of people incarcerated because they did not control their anger. Anger has to managed. It costs you money, relationships and opportunities. You need to nip anger in the bud, especially with children. If you don’t actively control your anger then losing your temper becomes a habit.
