Avoiding the Anger Trap

By Caterina Spinaris Tudor , Ph.D. , and Gregory Morton
When we perceive ourselves to be opposed, threatened, disrespected or mistreated it is easy to get angry and go into attack mode, emotional guns blazing.

Such reactions also cause us to handle ag-gravating situations in hostile ways, and so increase the possibility of conflict and further stress in our lives. Throwing more gasoline on a fire only makes the fire bigger.

To not be consumed by our anger, we have to be able to keep it from overtaking our thinking process and our actions. full story
