    Good post Vandana. It is really critical to self-retrospect ourselves time and again. It is that quality that will make you grow. And it is a must during our tough times.

    And great observations, I agree with all of them. One more big thing I would like to add to this list is EGO.

    And I could personally relate to this article. I used to get angry often and for every small thing. But I reduced it drastically and I could clearly see a difference it had made in my relationships, career, my reduced stress levels, etc. The bad thing about anger is every single time, after I get angry and reacted, I would think why did I get so angry for this and I shouldn’t have done like that.

    That guilt was a lot to handle and it stressed me a lot. But when I reduced my anger, I could feel more at peace. I had other issues, but those are part and parcel of life which will be aggravated if I got angry.

    Keep writing. I would be waiting for your next post on how to tackle anger.

      Thanks for reading. I am glad you could relate to it. Yes, “ego” is certainly something which distorts our ability to think straight. I too experience guilt after losing my temper and in fact that’s what prompted me to write about it. Thanks for your comment.

    Great post, V! Analyses anger and its core reasons very well. Although I’d go with Hormones for my short-temperedness 😛 😀

    Nice Article. Like how you broke down the origins of anger into 7 areas; it almost seems to rationalise Mr anger and take the wind out of his sails! Also like the practical application to daily life.

    I find that perfectionism can lead to anger. Also not being happy/ content within can cause one to play the blame game and anger comes up. Truly happy and loving people are never angry.

    However there is a benefit to having controlled anger in certain circumstances e.g. fighting against injustices; however the the resultant action must not come from an egotistic perspective or from the anger rather it should come from a perspective of ‘doing what is right’ and using the anger energy productively. Something I am working on doing!

    I find it really funny how culturally it is sometimes seen as a strong/cool trait i.e. being the strong angry commanding person….. but this is rubbish!

      I agree. Perfectionism leads to dissatisfaction thereby making the person angry. Channelising anger is a little tricky but something to work upon. Thanks for reading and commenting. I really appreciate it!
