Are you having trouble controlling your anger? Are you the victim of someone who loses their temper? Controlling feelings of anger can be very difficult, but it is possible.
Joseph Telushkin, a rabbi and best-selling author, shares one simple yet doable rule that may just save the relationships of those who take it seriously. Joseph’s golden rule encourages you to “restrict the expression of your anger only to the incident that provoked it, no matter how angry you get”.
You don’t have to bottle up your anger. You can express yourself as long as you avoid phrases like “you always...” and “you never...”. These sayings are untrue, will make the other person defensive, and only fuel the argument.
With a little focus and self control, this simple rule can help transform your reaction to anger. If you, or someone you know, are struggling with managing anger, there is hope and this guide can help.
