What is Anger?

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. Anger is a corrosive emotion that can run off with your mental and physical health.

I am not here to write a full text on this, but based on my observations, I picked up some things. For me, I think this emotion is very useful In battle as it blinds one from the reality of seeing people as human. In our daily lives, it is not possible not come across and not impossible to conquer.

Anger can tear people apart, families, siblings, lovers and friends and even takes us away from God our Father, if there is no peace in you, you can’t communicate with anyone even Him. It blinds us from reality and allows you want to put blame to anything that your way.

Anger deals with people not only mentally and physically but also emotionally, socially, and most of all spiritually and so do the people and environment around you. For me, this is a state of illness.

For example, if a man is always angry, it affects his family members and friends causing trauma and would drive some away. His children as they grow can acquire such attitude taking it as the norm and also inflict on other people too. It is like a chain reaction.

The first way is through God Almighty, for through Him comes peace and self control. This is the cheapest way to treat anger management. All good and perfect things come from Him. All we have to do is to ask and we shall be given, seek and we shall find, knock and the door would be opened. If we seek Him, be rest assured that peace will reign no matter how long the trial has been. If we have someone behaving as such, we should pray to God, just as St Monica prayed for her son St Augustine. Her perseverance in prayer showed beautiful results and is now an example for each and everyone of us. Peace be with you as you enjoy this Christmas. Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
