I have problems with anger management. If someone insults me in anyway I blow up in their face, if someone trys to hurt me physically I defend myself rather well, if something doesn't go my way I get upset and turn to violence,either physically or emotionally. How do I control my anger?

Put your hands in your pockets and a zipper on your lip until you find a program to help you.

Call the counselors in the phone book until you find one who does anger groups.

Sounds like your self esteem must be pretty low to have to be so defensive all the time.

Write in a journal daily and reread it to see what the true causes are here.

seek anger management classes.

ask yourself why you react with anger?

try to change the cycle, be in control of yourself, not the other way around.

Hiya Trac,

I know that this sounds hokey, but have you ever done the counting backwards from 10 thing? When you feel the blowup coming on, count backwards slowly from ten, don't respond until you're done counting. For now, that might help you keep your lip zipped as Janes suggests.

I don't know much about the anger management classes, but just talking about it will start to help. You're very very angry about something, and most likely it has nothing to do with the "insult" occurring at the moment. If you don't turn up any leads on the anger management classes, you might just want to seek a session or two with a counselor to see if you can root out what might really be bugging you.

.....so what are you mad at "you" about? You're projecting onto others what you are angry with yourself about or are confused about how to control something.

Sometimes we are like a bottle that has been filled all the way to the top and has a tenth of the room left empty. This is the tenth that we try to operate on. Can't happen, won't happen. We will blow eventually. So, what have you been stuffing all these years? Earthquakes are there - for a reason. They warn us that what we've stuffed is about to explode and rip us apart. The red light is on - please acknowledge....it's not about traffic, or co-workers, or the long line at the checkout stand....time to stand still and look inward...where the poison that you've stuffed?

Hey there Ladeska!

Hello Everyone...

Today while shopping at my favorite store, the local walmart, there was a man mumbling angry words at everyone he passed by, his face was frowned and his eyes were dark and he walked right passed me as I smiled at him, and he started swearing and cursing at everyone around us, sort of scary you know? Hope to GOD he doesn't own a gun!

Great advice as usual Ladeska!

Love,
Kimberly Ann
