Understanding Anger To Improve Yourself

Dealing With Anger

Anger is one of the most common natural emotions. We all get angry once in a while and we feel this for various reasons. It is a manifestation of either frustration or pain. Anger is an emotion that not only affects you but also those around you. It may seem a very negative emotion and most of the time, social protocols have conditioned people to repress it.  Although anger is perceived negatively, it has a purpose. Anger can help us improve as an individual and also improve our relationships.
When anger arises, it usually involves other people. Either they are a part of the reason or they are part of pacifying it. This means that either way, this emotion involves someone other than yourself.  How you react to a situation is what determines the degree of anger. If you can observe the situation without reacting to it, in time, the anger will subside.
Anger can also bring people to wrong themselves. When you get angry, you lose control of your emotions and this can lead you to dislike yourself. Usually, people deal differently in the guilt of anger. Some may resort to eating, consuming alcohol or drugs, promiscuous sex or other unhealthy practices when angry, hurt or frustrated.
You should remember that it’s normal to be angry but it doesn’t have to take over your life.  Suppressing anger may lead you to more troubles since trying to run away from it does not solve anything. It can be damaging in the long run since you are ignoring your emotion. Anger should be faced since it is an affirmation that you are human. You have frustrations and pains that you need to acknowledge and sometimes, anger is the way to face them.
Anger is an emotion that forces you to pay attention. It is a nudging emotion that makes you analyze and realize the things that are not satisfying you. If you keep ignoring anger, you are ignoring the things that are continuously bringing you unhappiness. Whether it’s an abusive relationship or an unhealthy environment, acknowledging your anger helps you confront the things that keep you from growing as a person. Anger also evokes change since it forces you to disengage yourself to factors that cause you this negative emotions, thus, freeing you from the things that are holding you back.
So remember that the next time you get angry, find out why and what you can do about it. Do not try to suppress or avoid anger since it will not go away but instead it will be kept inside you like a time bomb waiting to explode on the next opportunity. Anger can also be a starting point of healing. When we acknowledge anger, we are acknowledging pains and frustrations. The acknowledgement allows us to start working on things that will eventually lead us to a more fulfilling life.

Letting Go of Clutters For A Happier Life

Change The Way You Feel

Letting go has always been one of the hardest things to do. Change is viewed by most people as a loss instead of an opportunity to start something new. Resisting the path to change is to hold on to things that leads to the buildup of clutters in life. Clutters can be tangible and intangible elements in our lives that hold us back from experiencing changes.
A lot of people cling to things (relationships, aspirations, material possessions) that they believe will be useful for them in the future. Clutter is highly associated with the fear of not having enough in case the time of need arrives. It’s the anticipation of not being able to have something when you need it. This mentality teaches people to live less in the present and more in the future that has not arrived yet — and worse, a future that is deemed already to be not “enough”.
Clutter also signifies our inability to let go, most of the time, out of sentiments. The problem with clutter is that we let it consume space in our houses, in our minds, in our hearts, and in our lives just because we think it is of value to us. However, if we keep on holding on to these things, we are building a mountain of objects or emotional baggage that can hinder us from bringing in new experiences in our lives. Whatever these things represent to us from the past, it is essential that we let go of it especially if it is stopping us to live the present.
Understanding that a clutter free life enables us to a lighter and more open view of the “right here right now”. Piling up all the things that we have acquired from the past does not validate our worth as a person. Clutters hinder us to freely enjoy our lives since it occupies physical, mental and emotional spaces.
To let go of clutters, it is essential to understand that nothing is more important than the present. The present is all you have and it definitely deserves more attention and value than the unchangeable past and the unrealized future. Letting go of clutters means letting go of sentiments and fears. This part will take more courage and strength. These representations of clutters are much more important rather than the actual clutters themselves.
Having the strength to let go means being centered as a person and understanding your real purpose in the present. Spiritual retreats have been proven to help people find their center and understand the importance of letting go in order to live a more positive life.
