I have a hidden berserker in me. Sure, I have righteous anger sometimes. But the way I react and express my feelings comes out scary, mean and can cause a scene. Lately I have prayed on the spot about it. This calms and grounds me effectively. The prayer starts off in an angry tone then improves, having and humbling and disciplining effect. Talking things out with trusted people helps too. I cannot always employ these strategies and could use more suggestions. Then again, I get angry at things I should not. I am in the wrong. It does not even occur to me to use the above strategies then. I am too caught up in my own selfish moment. I pray after the fact. I try to apologize to the people involved afterwards. I only do it again eventually. I seem to have a long fuse but an overblown powder keg. I even get mad at myself. I beat myself up over all sorts of things. I believe it to be a form of self abuse. My theory is I would rather take things out on myself than others. I might become indignant rather than address whatever the issue is. My anger symptoms must have a rooted cause that I am avoiding or not even aware of. All of the above is frustrating, annoying and troublesome. I will start to pray about this. One specific request I have been making of God recently is for Him to take control of my emotions. Identifying this problem and wanting to change is a good sign and start, I figure. Any and all advice, scripture, prayers, comments or constructive criticism is appreciated. God bless you, GregoryB 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. - Psalm 37:8 New International Version (NIV)
