U mad, bro?
Maybe your not, but I am. My teacher gave us homework on Friday that's due on Monday, Star Wars Episode VIII has been pushed back to December '17, and my brother ate the last bit of chocolate but left the wrapper in the cupboard... I am mad, bro! And it's important that I know how to deal with my anger better than this man pictured above, or the woman pictured below. So please, if you've ever felt annoyed, mildly peeved, or even downright furious, tell us! How did you deal with it? Any tips?
Join in Monday 29th August at 8pm AEST to talk about anger, how to deal with it, recognizing if you're angry too much, and how you can feel cool, calm, and relaxed more often.

I do get quite angry sometimes. I don't often talk about it though.
One main way I cope with it is to just take a deep breath and ignore everything for a moment. This actually helps quite a lot.
Another way I deal with it, is if I'm at home and my brother (for example) threw something at me. Instead of instantly reacting and throwing it right back at him and giving him what he wants, attention, I will just stand up, and walk outside and think. What helps is to think of every single thing you've done in the last 2 weeks or something. It's a great distraction.
Would like to hear everyone else's strategies.
Hope this helped.
By the way, @tsnyder , congratulations on 999 posts. one more until 1000.
I'll see if I can make it for this one! That is, if I'm not too mad at the typo in that second sentence *tsk tsk*
No human being, however great or powerful, was ever so free as a fish
@RandomName those are some great ways of working through angry feelings! On Monday we'll all show up to this thread at 8pm AEST and talk about it real time. Do you want to join in?
I reckon it'd be great for us all to share ways of working with the angry feels
I also wonder if sometimes it's okay just to be angry? Like is it always a bad thing?
What do you folks think?
I'd like to talk about identifying things that make us angry, like how to identify and what to do with that knowledge (like preparing or stuff)
I hope we get to chat @RandomName! even if you can only drop in for a little while
but hey, if you can't make it tonight, you can always make a post later and ask literally whatever you want to ask and we shall join you to chat about it
