Anger – A course of Destruction

Anger is a human emotion which is said to be good sometimes but can be destructive when it is expressed excessively or when it gets out of control. The truth of the matter is that, most times, anger usually gets out of hand. People often fail in controlling or taming their anger. Anger does more harm than good. It’s a major cause of problem in our world.

… Anger is one letter short of danger.

We are living in a time where a lot things can easily turn you off and set you on anger mode but as true as that might sound it doesn’t justify the expression of destructive anger. If you and I are to look at how things are in this world, we will keep hurting till life will be drained from us. When things happen and you get angry it actually add to the problem.

… Anger doesn’t solve anything, it builds nothing but can destroy everything.

An angry person can never think straight. Most of the things that comes to mind is usually negative. When anger is in action, destruction fills the air. Anger leads to rage and it does nothing but destruction. Anger clouds your judgement and put you in a position to hurt and be hurt.

… Ralph Waldo Emerson said… For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.

Anger causes problem for us both on the inside and on the outside. It affects our well being. It has adverse effects on our health. A lot of people around the world have been destroy because of anger. A lot of businesses, families, marriages, relationships, friendships e.t.c has been put to an end because of anger issue. Too many people have lost lives and properties because of anger.

… Anger brings pain. Where there is anger, there is pain underneath.

Anger takes away happiness. It brings different types of negative feelings or emotions that not only put the bearer in pain but also hurt people or things around. Anger is as old as life, we know the outcome but yet many still fall a victim of it. Anyone that wants peace of mind and want to enjoy a good relationship, marriage, family, career or business should never indulge in anger.

… Maya Angelou said, bitterness is a cancer. It eats upon is host. But anger is like fire, it burns it all.

Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge in these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you. Always put in a thought or two before expressing a feeling or emotion.

I have seen anger in display many times and the outcome is always bad. I use to have anger issues many years back and until I realized that anger does nothing but harm me more, I do away with it totally. Now, anger is the last thing that comes to mind, I learn to have control over my emotions. I’m sure you have seen anger being displayed on one or two occasions, it can be a terrible thing.

Always remember love does not entails anger. Love does not destroy. It gives life, it saves.

Thanks for your time. Have a blossom week.

  4. Anger can be either constructive or destructive; but most times, it is destructive. Therefore, if possible don’t give a place to anger at all in your life as the author admonished and advised.

  5. Your truly welcome as always …. l cam from a family that had a father with Victorian values of how children were treated and it usually consisted of a belting and for my mother when he was drunk threats and abuse …. this took its toll on me and caused anger, resentment and asking a question why have a child and treat them like this …. answer took years and years …. Now much better …no longer want to punch a door as l believed it was better than punching a person as my dad had told me where picked on at school and it was not just family, but so called friends and partners that took their pound of flesh …. But guess what who did l blame …. ME … Not worthy of love or care … still hurts but pain recedes thanks to God … Amen πŸ™s

  6. From my experience with anger, a life of “labels” and a time as a friend of Bill (AA), it’s important to express anger so as not to have it bottled up. Otherwise you build resentment inside and when that comes out, it’s even worse than just the anger. It’s finding healthy, “least destructive” path to release it. One of the best ways was going into an open field and just yelling my guts out. Unfortunately I live in a town near other people and the cops got called. I’ve heard people paying to go into a room and just throw breakable items. I found this, The Anger Room:

    1. Wow… That’s interesting. And I agree with your words. The issue is anger getting out of control. Such anger destroy things. Extreme or excessive anger doesn’t work anywhere.

      Thanks my friend. Your words mean a lot. Do enjoy the rest of the day.

      1. Yes, extreme and excessive anger doesn’t work. The key is to catch the anger when it’s small and manageable. Controlled releases on the valve so to speak! Hugs to you and I hope you have a lovely day as well!

  7. Anger builds nothing but destroys everything. But the way am feeling now made me vent my anger out on my boss.

    There are situations where you need to express your pain and how you’ll feeling to whom ever offended you or think you’re a bullet shield….. Plz forgive my babbling.

    All I meant to say is great post and good points….but at times anger is necessary, just a human nature of showing hurt
