Getting angry is a normal part of being human but uncontrolled anger can destroy ourselves and others. Anger can be used constructively but can also be a destructive human emotion – internally and externally. It may come unexpectedly and controls you in an instant without you knowing it. Early signs of anger are irritation, disappointment or depression. Here are some ways to handle anger and keep our sanity.

Listen and anayze


Bear in mind that nothing will be resolved if both sides are not listening. No one changes his mind in an exchange of angry words.


Figure out why you think the person acted badly, unreasonably or childish. Maybe the person has a good reason for behaving that look irrational and worse to you. Try to determine the person’s reason.

Be calm

Control your emotion

Do not let yourself be controlled by the person’s anger. Only you are in control of your emotions. Do not let others control you.

Remain calm

By remaining calm and in control, you will surely be more reasonable and rational in your thinking. Anger will only prevent you from seeing the best options advantageous to you.

Count to 10

When you are upset, take a deep breath and try counting to 10.

Let your anger out

Do worthwhile activities

Let your anger out by doing some exercises, household chores or sporting activities. Mow the yard, clean the house, ride a bike, play basketball, etc.

Respond, don’t react

Respond to people. Use your brain and not your stomach.

Prevent it

Avoid people that upsets you

Keep away from the person or persons that make you angry. Avoid especially those people who seem bent on really making you angry all the time.

Deny access

Do not allow the person that makes you angry access to you. Give the person the penalty of rejection. He or she deserves it.

I agree.
Getting angry is normal, but to be normal again, one must forget those angry moments!
