Are you Angry?

Have you ever been angry in your whole life? What do you do to keep yourself calm, how do you manage angry? How do you react when you are angry? Are you the "IN YOUR FACE" type of person or the cold war type of person?

I was really angry today at work. I guess it was more frustrated more than anything. I was upset that I was "pushed" to come up with more deliverables when the management does not know the confusion or uncertainty that we have on the ground which causes some deliverables to be meaningless or unnecessary. I guess alot of times, the management tends to see things from a million miles above that they couldn't care less for technical and minute details which on the ground may be a stumble block or an issue to overcome.

I was so angry today to the point of being spiteful in emails. I am not the "IN YOUR FACE" type of person when it comes to expressing my anger. I tend to keep it within me and internalise it and just vent it to someone or God in my shower.

Today, I thought about whether I am happy in the job and whether God place me in that situation for a reason whether it is to mold me to be a better person.. I donno... but it is something to ponder and pray about tonight...

What do you do when you are angry?

I feel your pain, Piggy! In fact I wrote an angry post in my blog yesterday :-)

After writing it, I felt better. Hope you do, too!

Sometimes it helps to share frustrations, and I usually call up a friend who understands. I think the blogosphere is a safe place too:) I meditate everyday, so sometimes I just do that. Hope today is better Alice:):) Hugs.

I saw on TV, that in Japan you can rent furnished rooms where you can vent your angry and throw things! perhaps that is a bit extreme, but it probably feels good!

Piggy said...

cabin + cub - That sounds like a great idea! But I am not sure whether I would pay for such a room.. but throwing things.. might be a bonus! Alternatively you can have dinner at a Greek restaurant that allows you to throw plates :D
