Grrrrr…. Anger…..

We all know what anger is, and we’ve all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.

Is It Good To “Let it All Hang Out?”

Psychologists now say that this is a dangerous myth. Some people use this theory as a license to hurt others. Research has found that “letting it rip” with anger actually escalates anger and aggression and does nothing to help you (or the person you’re angry with) resolve the situation.

It’s best to find out what it is that triggers your anger, and then to develop strategies to keep those triggers from tipping you over the edge.

Relaxation

Simple relaxation tools, such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery, can help calm down angry feelings. There are books and courses that can teach you relaxation techniques, and once you learn the techniques, you can call upon them in any situation. If you are involved in a relationship where both partners are hot-tempered, it might be a good idea for both of you to learn these techniques.

Some simple steps you can try:

  • Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won’t relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your “gut.”
  • Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as “relax,” “take it easy.” Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply.
  • Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination.
  • Nonstrenuous, slow yoga-like exercises can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer.

Practice these techniques daily. Learn to use them automatically when you’re in a tense situation.

 

Some Other Tips for Easing Up on Yourself

Timing: If you and your spouse tend to fight when you discuss things at night—perhaps you’re tired, or distracted, or maybe it’s just habit—try changing the times when you talk about important matters so these talks don’t turn into arguments.

Avoidance: If your child’s chaotic room makes you furious every time you walk by it, shut the door. Don’t make yourself look at what infuriates you. Don’t say, “well, my child should clean up the room so I won’t have to be angry!” That’s not the point. The point is to keep yourself calm.

Finding alternatives: If your daily commute through traffic leaves you in a state of rage and frustration, give yourself a project—learn or map out a different route, one that’s less congested or more scenic. Or find another alternative, such as a bus or commuter train.

Do You Need Counseling?

If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counseling to learn how to handle it better. A psychologist or other licensed mental health professional can work with you in developing a range of techniques for changing your thinking and your behavior.

 

When you talk to a prospective therapist, tell her or him that you have problems with anger that you want to work on, and ask about his or her approach to anger management. Make sure this isn’t only a course of action designed to “put you in touch with your feelings and express them”—that may be precisely what your problem is. With counseling, psychologists say, a highly angry person can move closer to a middle range of anger in about 8 to 10 weeks, depending on the circumstances and the techniques used.

….”miss u”

My tears keep on rolling

I regret my feeling

Not knowing what to do next

I sit on my couch

Weeping over n over

Remembering the day i messed up

Knowing your pain

I moved on my way…

I realized my err later

Longing for your love

I wait for the moment of togetherness

Knowing it might not help anymore

As u are into a new bond

And i dont want to disturb u baby…

I still spend my nights crying

And my days thinking of u…

I thank lord for teaching me

The worth of ur love…

I live in dreams

Of our past…

I still love u baby…

And missing u than ever…

காதல் !!!

வான மஹா ராஜனுக்கும்
மேக இளவரசிக்கும்
காதல்…
உலகமே கொண்டாடி மகிழ்கிறது
அந்தி சாயும் நேரம்
பல வர்ணங்களும் பூசி…

இருவருக்கும் இடையே ஒரு நாள்
ஊடல் ஏற்பட்டது…
மேக இளவரசி அழுதால்…
அடை மழை அடித்தது…
மஹா ராஜன் சமாதானம் செய்தான்
சிலென்ற மென் காற்று வீசியது…

இது போலவே…
காதல் வரும் பாதையும் தெரிவது இல்லை
நம்முள் ஏற்படும் பல நூறு மாற்றங்களும் புரிவது இல்லை
அவற்றின் விளைவுகளும் விடைகளும் மட்டும்
நம்மை அறியாமல் அனைவரும் அறிந்துவிடுகின்றார்கள் !!!
