"J" is for "Jettison Anger"

Just to clue everyone in on where I am getting my alphabet from . . . it is from the plaque that hangs in my entryway.

So today is the day to jettison anger . . . .

One thing I have learned about anger is that most of the time the person who are angry with DOESN'T CARE.  Anger is a *reaction* that is chosen.  It leads to fuming and rehashing of whatever trigger of the anger was.

The question to ask when anger strikes is not "how can I make the person who 'made' me angry change".  The question to ask is what is this feeling here to show me about MYSELF.

Just ask that question . . . then listen for the answer.


  1. We have so much more control over emotions and reactions than we give ourselves credit for.. great post :)

  2. I wish I was better at hiding my anger. I get angry and then I am just upset the whole day. I am getting better though. When anger hits and no matter how hard I try I can't change the mood, I try and be by myself so I don't hurt anyone else whether with my words or the lack thereof.

  3. I love the people who say that anger just gives the wrong person the prime real estate in your head. It's still something I have to work on sometimes, but I've gotten a lot better at it over the years. Age and wisdom definitely help.
