Perhaps, the person was having a bad day or they had a death in the family and wasn't thinking properly, maybe, they didn't see me and they feel awful about cutting me off. This can be used in a lot of situations and I find it really helpful.

But how do you do it when it becomes overwhelming?.. I used to meditate it out, like you suggested. But for some reason that just makes it worse now.

- you have to first realize that it's not pointless, that there is a reason behind it
- there's nothing wrong with feeling anger, it's a normal emotion, it's how you act on it that does matter
- you can vent your anger with things like punching bags, yelling at people, breaking things, but it will only be a relief and not a change in your recurring anger
- meditation is good because it helps you concentrate on your feelings without having them get in the way
- ask yourself what is your anger responding to, and what's the reason to continue feeling angry?

I used to run long distances but now I talk it out with my therapist. Both work well for me. You can also "think it to death" eventually you'll get tired of it and let it go.

I have a condition called pyroluria, which causes unrelenting anxiety and can lead to angry outbursts. It is thought to be a genetic defect that causes the body to lose zinc and vitamin B6,in the process of making haemoglobin. Zinc, B6,omega6 and manganese rectify this,but to get the balance just right,testing is required. Depending on the severity people require varying amounts. Anyway, this is something else to explore.

A looonggggg time ago I went to an adminstrative assistance seminar. When confronted with employes or empoyERs who hurt you or make you angry, they suggested doing something that I always got a kick out of. (But you need to be very discreet doing it!)

Write the person's (or situation - doesnt have to be employees, or person, etc..can be anything) name on a posty note or little piece of paper or what have you. Stick it on the bottom of you shoe and mash down (or stomp) on it with your foot. You can do this for as long as you want... but again.. (use descretion they advise! lol) Lest someone sees their name on the piece of paper. I don't know if its necessarily a right way or a totally long term way of dealing with any anger issues.. but I've found when I did it, it made rather laugh than be angry anymore :D

I listen to very loud music or practice on the guitar, and sometimes when it's really bad I tend to eat a lot.
