Careful not to fuel the anger in this world

With all the negative news and the many terrorist acts we do have to be careful not to fuel the anger in this world.

The Anger and the Truth

The Anger and the Truth (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Many people show straight ahead their anger when they hear something bad again happened. by doing so they often also use certain words and phrases they might regret later.

We should recognize that the anger we are letting out can be absorbed and carried by those around us making them also to take a certain attitude or getting them to be defensive, they also becoming angry themselves and beginning to express it in their own ways.

The anger we put out into the world goes on to perpetuate more anger, and more energies that are negative, all around us. Even worse, it indiscriminately disrupts and pollutes the waters of our souls. Much of this can be solved, however, by finding healthy ways to deal with our anger, such as waiting to express it until we have had some time to cool down and to process it ourselves in our minds and in our hearts. Often times, as we wait on our anger, we find that it actually diminishes–that as time goes by, the heat from our emotions begins to evaporate, and we are simply left with the actual problem. At this point, we can have a chat with the individuals who made us angry and we can work on resolving the issues in healthy and productive ways.

writes Dr Austin Ejaife *(Ugo1)* in his latest article: (please find out more about it there) > Manage Your Anger!

We should ourselves be in control over our own anger, but also should be aware we can do much more than we think about the anger of others around us.

What we can choose though is how we react to that initial anger. {Anger, it’s a choice}

Do not mind what others do, but stay yourself and keep in control over yourself, even when others are trying out to get you out of control or when there are many things witch irritate you.

Christians should learn to be stronger than the one who tempts us to be angry. The follower of Christ should try to do as their master teacher, staying in control of the tongue. No matter how the other may react badly or negatively to us we should try to stay polite and friendly. In a way we should try to disarm them with our friendliness. We should not respond in an unkind way, through God’s power and His protection in our lives we should “slough off the strife of the tongue”.
