What Does Your Anger Speak To Others?


I believe there are two sides to every coin. That being said, we can be presented with a negative and take something negative away from it or we can make the choice to turn it into a positive. The reason I am who I am came as a direct result of the people I grew up around. If someone had qualities I admired, I would try my best to work toward having those qualities as well. It someone had traits that I considered negative or offensive, I did not learn their behavior, I chose not to ever become it. Even now, in my 40’s I still do the same.

My son came home from school yesterday and told me one of his teachers got angry and threw a desk up against the wall. I had two choices. I could have expressed my feelings about the teacher or I could use this situation as a teaching opportunity. I asked him how he felt when he saw his teacher act that way. His response led me to believe that he felt it was extremely inappropriate. We talked about how he handles being angry and the difference between what is acceptable and what is not. We have to remember that we are always a role model for the people around us. They are watching and our actions and words influence who they will be. When it involves teenagers  who are already struggling with who they are while at the same time testing limits, it is so important to set the standard for good behavior. How do you handle anger?

  1. Wow at the teacher throwing a desk up against the wall….

    I believe everyone has a breaking point and a different threshold for pain. There are times when we hold it all in or become passive aggressive to be viewed as politically correct. Then… the least little thing can be a trigger. In my humble opinion of course๐Ÿ˜Œ

  2. Just Plain Ol' Vic

    When I feel like I am close to losing my temper, I will be honest and let that person know and walk away – give myself an opportunity to disengage and calm down.


  3. A teacher throwing a chair is inexcusable. They no doubt would not include it if he/she were being evaluated!! It never ceases to amaze me what some teachers do in the classroom . I believe next to being called to be a preacher, one should be “called” to be a teacher. One who loves and lifts children up, to become the best little person they know how to be. I’m really controlling my anger toward that teacher. Is it showing?
