Phaytea’s Pulse is participating in the #AtoZChallenge for 2017. The Theme is ‘Awakening of Self’ and ‘Venting tips to save the day’ is our entry for letter V. The theme focuses on character traits that will gear us towards Meaningful Living and will run for 26 days in April except sundays. Please stop by the blog everyday for subsequent posts as we read the 26 letters of the alphabet together. Enjoy!!☺☺
I had the busiest day at work today….I didn’t even have lunch or get time to catch up on blogs, comment or even write my entry for letter V.
I wasn’t going to allow my workload affect my mood. So instead of taking it out on anyone, I decided to observe how my day pans out and just write about venting later.
The good thing is, I did have a good day after all, it’s 11:00pm and I’m hoping I can do this before the clock hits 00:00
Anger is one of the most common form of expression….after love…in my opinion.
It is usually likened to negativity, upsetting situations, violence and all that bad stuff.
I like to believe that anger is not totally bad as sometimes it spurs us towards wanting to do better.
Remember success is the best revenge?
While being overwhelmed today, I decided to stay positive, be happy and I did everything I could to keep calm.
Whenever you find yourself in an upsetting situation, here are some venting tips that can save the day
- Try not to react immediately.
- While you are waiting it out, indulge in safe activities. Music is usually my best choice.
- This can be annoying…. but you can use the ‘I do not intend to offend you’ line before venting.
- Try to bridle your tongue when you vent especially when someone you really care about is involved.
- Drop a note or a text.
- Your body language can say several things in place of your mouth.
I do not encourage the silent treatment because it can be unhealthy.
Anger is an acceptable form of expression so it is fine to vent when you feel the need to.
Vent, clear the air and free yourself from any toxic feeling…..but please do not get violent/aggressive.
Please share your thoughts
Do you think it is important to control ones anger?
Should you go all out and not bother who you hurt?
