Trivializing Anger

Posted on: September 30, 2011

“Smile it’s contagious”.  A beautiful expression that holds a perfect truth and a wonderfully positive message worth living and spreading, for it does wonders. Likewise, anger is contagious… And it also does wonders!!! As a matter of fact, anger could be a master of all evil since it “does not listen perfectly to reason.”

However, one cannot deny that human nature and anger have always been best friends, and it is extremely difficult for a lot of people to eliminate it from their lives (or even reduce it). Well, that’s understandable with regards to our world filled with negativity, aggression, and hatred, not to mention hard living conditions, psychological disorders, abuse, and many more. Fair enough… Let’s not worry then about eliminating it now (though we should), but rather try to be more practical. Why not minimizing its negative effects, which make the lives of many living hells. Why not working on deflating the arrogant importance of anger, which makes all what results from anger, from misunderstandings to fights and greater sins, seems ridiculously insignificant.

I think trivializing anger could be a great step toward controlling anger,hence eliminating it, which will eventually bring constant peace of heart and mind, the key ingredients to happiness.

How to trivialize it?? Well, it’s a long story that starts with “smile, it’s contagious! 😉
