It’s so easy to preach and so difficult to practice. Especially, when you are told to control your wrath and keep your cool in the most trying circumstances. More often than not, in the heat of an infuriating situation it is very difficult to even think of following any anger management steps. More so, when you feel that your anger is completely justified. The age-old advice “Count to 10 to control your temper” simply doesn’t work when you are held in the throes of anger.
If the other person is too angry to understand you and when a proper communication seems impossible at that point of time, it is better to leave the place or suggest to your adversary that you will discuss the problem later at some calmer hour. Both of you will feel less defensive/aggressive then and you might even be able to sort out your differences amicably.
Obviously all causes of anger or fights should not be ignored or dismissed. Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself whether that particular situation calls for such an action. Eventually all kinds of situations have to faced fearlessly and sorted out. Delaying or putting off things at a later date might not work always.
