Members Share: What do you do to control your anger
Anger is a very difficult emotion for me to control, especially around those that are close to me. I have came leaps and bounds in this regard over the years as not being physically aggressive, but more of emotionally and verbally aggressive. It brings out a side of me that many don’t think that I have. However, I know I need to work on this and continue to do so frequently. I practice grounding techniques, listen to music, go for a walk, and many other relaxing tools in my recovery tool belt. As part of my mental health diagnosis, I have a reaction stage after I get aggressive and I become very apologetic. Sometimes I wish I thought things out better before saying things that are either none of my business or hurt others feelings. However, I am continually working on that to better this so that I progress better in this regard.
