How to Control Your Rage

There are certain situations in life that cause us to be so angry and sometimes, it’s hard to control.
Close your eyes and try to remember that situation.

Wait. Okay. Not that angry.

I know, certain situations or things people do or say can fill us with so much rage.

Like what I said in my How To Deal With Negative Feelings post, try to think of an outlet.

No, wait. Don’t look at that person. I know I used to say punching a random person in the face helps but I’ve changed. That opinion doesn’t matter anymore.

When I say “outlet”, I didn’t mean punch someone. That would be painful. Not to the person you punched but to you. Your knuckles. I mean, yeah, their face would hurt, too, but who cares?

So… outlet.

1. Think happy thoughts.

Like when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech.

Or when Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator "accidentally" poured Kim Jong Il's urn all over Ryan Seacrest’s clothes at the red carpet.


I know. HAHA. That shit was funny.

2. Sing. And dance, too, if you can.

For example:

I don't know but this should be a dance craze.
Look very closely. Observe her facial expression. Do you see it? She looks pretty pissed off in the beginning BUT she danced the rage that's building inside of her away. You'll notice that it's working on her.

3. Find a hobby.

When you start feeling that heaviness in the chest and you feel like you’re about to explode or turn into The Incredible Hulk, do that hobby and focus on it. Draw. Shave someone’s head. Twerk. Whatever! Anything just to turn you back into the peace-loving, delicate butterfly that you know you are.



A few minutes later...



See how it works?

4. Write it down.

You can write it in a letter. It's your choice whether you want to send the letter or not. Or write it anywhere. Like your neighbor's car.  What's important is you let it out of your system. Remember, be gentle. CONTROL. YOUR. RAGE. Keep the friendly vibe in your writing.


5. Tell the person exactly what you’re thinking or feeling.

Out of all the things mentioned above, saying what you feel works the best. But remember, when you do this, try not to sound too angry, even when you’re almost in a murderous rage. We're talking about self-control here. Smile. Smile at that basic bitch while saying what you feel.

In other news, it's going to be my birthday next month. Remember what we did last year? The "Challenge Gnetch" Challenge? Want to do it again? Then E-mail me (or message me on Facebook or send me a DM on Twitter... whatever) your challenges and if they're good, I'll make another video, just like I did last year. Remember, don't post the challenges in the comments.

I'm such a pushover sometimes.

Last year's video is private now. HAHA.

UPDATE:

I don't have time to make a video so ignore the last part. Sorry. I fail at life. I know.

  8. Shaving someone's head is my new hobby, but only half of their head. It could be a new fashion trend too :)

  9. It's totally appropriate to write someone a letter filled with homicidal threats as long as you pepper it with emoticons. I mean, who could ever *really* get upset at something like "I WANT TO STAB YOU IN THE EYE =o)" I mean, look at that cute little emoticon! Who cares what comes before it? Not me, man. Not me.

  11. Honestly, I just force myself to emotionally shut down. It's surprisingly easy after a while. But every so often, I start crying while I am working out, proving that exercise in, in fact, not good for you. This was a sad comment. I am sorry.
