Losing something of great value or dealing with someone who conspires against you can easily elicit an angry response. Unfortunately, anger is a dangerous and destructive emotion that always threatens to leap out of control. It pushes you to make hasty decisions that result in bitterness and guilt. There are times when anger is appropriate, but most often it is futile. You will face countless opportunities in life to lose your temper over minor inconveniences, but making a conscious effort to channel your anger in a constructive manner is what incites change. When you feel like you’re ready to explode, remember that losing control will not solve the problem, it only fuels the fire.
