So, we all know at least one or two people with anger management issues. Hell it might even be you, yes you I am pointing at you. I was watching TV yesterday after the very confusing day i had, and it was one of those cop shows- American things (Las Vegas Police show). The guy should have never been arrested as the offense he committed was minor. He would have been let go on a warning type technicality. The same guy turned around and further assaulted the person he was fighting right in front of the cop. So on this note they take him into the station, and book him as a class 2. They were planning to hold him in the station till he calmed down and then release him. Dude even had cuts on his face, when the station medics were trying to treat him, he ended up talking back and acting smart. Then one cop came to tell him to get up, and the guy refused again. So two cops picked him up off the floor where he had placed himself. That’s how dude attacked the officer oh. Ripped his pocket,and pretty much assaulted him. The dude was in handcuffs already at this point, so they put him in a restraining chair.
See how anger escalated a very mild situation to a misdemeanor and then to a felony? Assaulting a police office has been upgraded to felonies in many states in America. If the system isn’t willing to protect the police, many people wont join. I for one used to be a “talker” when angry in my late teens and very early 20’s. The older i got, the quicker i realized that unless one is chemically imbalanced, there is no reason not to control your anger. Are you an animal? I stay away from people that “claim not to be able to control their anger”- in my mind at that point, you have refused to grow by working on yourself. You are not a goat, quit acting like one – go to therapy if you cant figure out what is causing you to lose control of yourself and your emotions. If you say there are no therapists in Nigeria, there are, but if it is not within price range – go t a pastor or Imam. I avoid someone who i grew up with for this very reason, I dislike people who chose not to control themselves. Anger has never mad anyone a better human being – IT IS DESTRUCTIVE! It is bad for your overall health, happy people thrive the most in life.
Do you believe in horoscopes? I do for the most part- my readings are almost always right. I am a Gemini, i don’t hold grudges for long, and i am very quick to say sorry whether I am wrong or right- because i dislike conflict in my life. I have been that way since primary school. The older i get, the less concerned I am about being right in an argument, i let people have a go at it, and move on. I do whatever it is i want to do anyway – whatever i think will make me sleep well at nite. Is your sign below accurate?
How do you feel about anger and grudges? And if you are currently working on anger issues, please share how you are doing it. Someone else might learn a thing or two.
