The spectrum of emotions has several shades, and every personality has one of these shades as a dominant trait while having a mix of all of them. If a person is funny, sassy, jovial, kind, confident, or has any positive attributes., people like and appreciate it. However, nobody wants to hang around with people who are rude, angry or aggressive because they throw an obnoxious vibe.
Even loved ones and family members maintain distance from people with regular anger outbursts and uncontrolled behaviour episodes. It is essential to understand the root cause of such emotional outbursts and implement anger management strategies to overcome this personality disorder. It is the process characterized by perceiving and controlling one’s anger, and it has to be done repeatedly on all occasions of a patient’s life.
Getting baffled occasionally or having the urge to express aggressively sometimes when you feel misunderstood or mistreated is normal; when handled diplomatically, those emotions are suppressed gradually. At the same time, people suffering from anger issues don’t know how to process that feeling and transform that emotion into something wild, aggressive, undermining or hurting themselves or others.
Let’s try to break down the strategies that can help people to prevent themselves from becoming freak shows:
- Contemplate your personality: In the race to fit into societal norms such as becoming millionaires, owning luxurious houses and cars and gaining worldly achievements. We ignore what makes us happy. It can be as simple as going for a walk, listening to our favourite music, reading a favourite book or learning new skills to boost our sense of accomplishment.
- The moment we stop thinking about our well-being, the negative emotions start bottling up, and we develop anxiety which is the core of all negative emotions. We need to stop and contemplate our personality adequately because that will overcome the stress, and little utilization activities can help develop feelings of positivity and peace.
- Be on time to meditate: Meditation is the process of aligning your body, mind and soul, and with continued meditation mindfulness, one can develop the habit of controlling angry emotions. When we react from a place of frustration, we might end up behaving recklessly or hurt someone we love, and we will regret that later. A meditated mind is more aware of feelings and understands that anger, like any other feeling, comes and goes in its due amount of time. So, it helps the person respond in a calm and composed manner, no matter how riled up the person feels at that moment.
- Breathing exercises: Although it is a part of the meditation process, breathing exercises alone play an essential role in promoting positive mental health. It is scientifically proven that it reduces stress and helps to improve the sleep cycle, so when people suggest “just breathe” when anyone has an episode of outburst. Then, they are not just saying it unnecessarily; it is a science-based tool that can calm us. Hence, meditation is a reliable tool to regulate our emotions and helps us to respond in skilled ways to external triggers.
