Anger Healthiest Responses
You are aware of the fact that you are angry, you have committed your situation to the LORD and you have identified at least a couple of the causes of your anger. Now you must determine if there is anything that you can do. There are three kinds of situations in life: (1) I can control or change; (2) I can influence; and (3) I can do nothing about. Don’t increase your frustration (and thus your anger) by trying to change situations you can do nothing about. If your cause falls under this category, your only choice is to continue to give it to the LORD in prayer and turn your attention to things you can change or influence. If it is a situation you can change or influence, get out a sheet of paper and make a list of your options. Fill the sheet with as many constructive alternatives as you can think of. If you’ve decided that a response is appropriate, determine whom you need to talk to, when to talk to them, how you can communicate in a way they are most likely to receive favorably and how long a time frame you have. A good rule of thumb is to deal with a problem as soon as you become aware of it and have had time to choose how you can best express your feelings. Anger can vary in its intensity. If you are experiencing a mild anger, you can usually deal with the situation on the spot. However, if the intensity of your anger is moderate to strong, it is usually wise to wait until you’ve taken time to think and pray it through.
