Let me know in some ways you have used anger constructively.
Any tips for people with anger problems I am sure would be appreciated by peoples experiences fits of rage and/or passion.
@everymorningbornfromtheashes, By working out…hard. Painting can be pretty awesome when you’re mad too.
Really though, since I started meditating regularly it is rare I get mad. All my passion is still there, but it seems to have lost its anger :)
I just thought though, I’m pretty lucky that when I do get mad I have people around me who I can just get it out to. My madness never stays in.
In my experience, I’ve found anger’s too raw of an emotion to be super constructive. It’s like being drunk, you can’t control it super well even though you feel more powerful.
As for managing the anger I’ve found Taoism to help quite a bit.
@everymorningbornfromtheashes, I very rarely get angry and am a pretty laid back and cheerful person.
However I had a day a few weeks back where I was finding it hard to control it but luckily enough I recently started playing competition dodgeball (which is awesome fun!)
Hurling dodgeballs at the opposing team was definitely a constructive way to let out anger haha and we won! :)
Basically, don’t waste your time concerning yourself with things or circumstances out of your control. You can prevent yourself from becoming frustrated by using that energy, that negative energy for positive ness. Turn it around and use that energy to help yourself accomplish shit that will better your own state of mind
+Made a bunch of high energy music.
+Worked really hard.
+Worked out really hard.
+Taught some assholes their place.
+Rocked women’s worlds in bed.
+Learned a lot about myself.
And a bunch more stuff.
Rage is good stuff if you know how to use it. That goes for all feelings. Gotta love the wide spectrum.
When I’m angry I freestyle to music, I try to hit moves precisely and on point. Then I get caught up in dance and I forget what I’m mad about almost. Put your anger into a talent, you’ll learn and become more skilled in what you do in the process and you’re likely to get over what you were mad about in the first place.
