In many cases, anger becomes an addiction when a person starts using it for his undue advantage.
Anger is a natural, honest, and a healthy emotion which is supposed to be expressed wisely. But once it turns into rage or chronicity, things become problematic. Chronic anger can be inherited in genes from one’s parents or family. Excessive anger weakens the heart and has the tendency to give rise to other life threatening illnesses like hypertension and cardiovascular complications. In many cases, anger becomes an addiction when a person starts using it for his undue advantage. In case of drug use, we can see the amplified anger, hence the overreactions.
Facts and beliefs are two different things. When beliefs are taken as facts, it is then when misunderstandings and false expectations arise, and such episodes can end up in anger. Four components/indicators of anger to be checked include one’s body language, facial expressions, voice tone, and choice of words at peak moment. We teach others how to treat us. One should address the misbehavior by other person and move on after giving it a closure. The surging energy in anger should be channelized in doing something constructive. Deep breathing and relaxation exercises help. Practicing sense of humor is a good idea for sharing light moments among each other. Control anger by being mindful and keeping undue stress at bay.
