LET IT GO
Expressing anger in a reasonable way can be healthy, as prolonged bouts of anger can take a toll on your body and make you susceptible to illness.
The first step to overcoming anger is acknowledging it. Be mindful of what you’re feeling as this will make it easier to tackle these toxic emotions and find solutions.
It helps to realise why you’re feeling angry or hateful. More often than not, anger and hatred come from fear and insecurity or they’re self-defence mechanisms.
It can be hard to make rational decisions in the heat of the moment. When you’re angry, go for a walk or practise meditation until you’ve calmed down. Then you’ll be able to control your emotions in a more efficient manner.
We need to ensure that we deal with issues thoroughly. Unresolved anger can seriously affect your health and happiness. Sometimes all you need to solve problems is to change your mind-set and admit when you’re wrong. You may not be able to change a particular person or situation, but you can change how you think about them.
Let go of your anger and hatred, and say yes to love and happiness. MATOME KUBU, EMAIL
