"Character isn't inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains." -- Helen Douglas

How do you feel about anger, in yourself and in others? How do you deal with it?
Anger is powerful energy. If we are afraid of this energy, we may attempt to deny or hide it. And when we lack control of the energy of anger, we impose it on other people or things.

The ways we react to anger usually reflect how we experienced anger as children and how our own anger when we were young was handled by the adults at the time.
On the journey of life recovery, I have been in many rooms and met thousands of people who are in one way or form on a similar journey. One of the things I truly wanted in recovery was serenity, and it is one of the gifts I have been given in good measure on the journey.

Probably because of this, I am actually ware when I am in the presence of people I know even slightly, and they are full of anger. Have you been with people with a calm exterior yet your instincts tell you just below the surface, there is lava ready to blow? Ever feel like a volcano ready to let loose? Anger (Hate, Fear) are emotions that must be faced and dealt with, they don't go away on there own.

In reality, anger, like any emotion, brings us information. It tells us how we feel about what is being experienced. If we receive anger's message and learn more about ourselves, the energy will pass. Chat through www.hopeserenity.ca.

"Too often we underestimate how quickly our feelings are going to change because we underestimate our ability to change them." -- David Gilbert
