Anger Management Message Board


Anger Management Board Index


I used to be that way. Seemed like the anger was uncontrollable sometimes. Not knowing what else to do, my dad enrolled me into a martial arts school.....Not one of those yuppie schools....I'm talking about one where the real fighters train at. Let me tell you that I got the **** knocked out of me so many times there that I forgot what being angry was all about. I always thought that I could win a fight by just being angry, but instead I learned the hard and painful way that being angry just causes you to lose your edge and become sloppy with technique. My sensei told me that if I ever wanted to become a good fighter like his top students, that I would have to learn how to control my rage and focus that energy. I realized that up till that point I was letting other people control how I felt. I reacted to what they were saying or doing. I wasn't in control of my emotions. I realized that the top fighters knew I was strong, but they would taunt me and make me swing out in anger so that they could get the advantage over me. I became the top student when I enlightened myself on the fact that it's my choice to react to anger, or choose to respond to it. It took several years of learning how to fight to actually learn how to win without fighting.

Perhaps you can find a similar outlet
