4 ways you can control your anger:

  1. Realize that no one can make you angry. It’s a reaction you allow. You can control it.
  2. Anger is caused by your interpretation of events. If you change your interpretation, you won’t get angry.
  3. Your interpretation is based on your past life experiences, which is really your emotional baggage. The less baggage you have, the less you will get angry
  4. The most powerful tool to stop anger is forgiveness. When you forgive, your anger melts away.
