Everywhere you look, you're probably seeing messages to "Be Positive" and to let go of your anger and basically to teach yourself to never feel angry.

But the truth is that you will feel angry sometimes. You don't need to feel guilty about it either. It's okay to feel angry and being able to feel this particular emotion is a healthy thing for you to do. Emotions like sadness, guilt, fear, envy, and anger are an important part of your "emotional intelligence".

They are just as important as feeling joy, happiness, and contentment.It's important that you don't deny your feelings or stuff them down because you consider them "negative"  or feel like you "shouldn't" express those type of emotions. Just as you want to feel happy sometimes, it's important to allow yourself to feel sad sometimes and yes, even angry sometimes. It's part of the natural flow of human emotions."Anger is your worst enemy” When you are in a fit of anger, you loose your capacity to think. Your mind refuses to act. You loose your mental balance and say such things that can never be taken back.How to prevent yourself from "blowing up" on others?(especially when you have a "short fuse")When you get angry or jealous, are you in control of your feelings and thoughts? Or do these feelings control you? Find the process of awareness, not only will you meet your own standards, but you will also raise it with every new revelation.

The goal isn't to never feel Angry the goal is to understand your Anger and to choose healthy ways to respond to it Tune in to our next episode of DirectShifts Stories as our COO @Vamshiinterviews @ George Anderson.  George Anderson is a Board Certified Diplomate in Psychotherapy, A Fellow in the American Orthopsychiatric Association and, the first global provider of Anger Management training, workbooks, videos, DVDs and interactive CDs.
