Anger, is it Worth It?

ANGER.  The definition of ‘anger’ according to Dictionary.com is;

a strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a wrong; wrath; ire.

Humans possess the capability to experience multiple forms of emotions. Anger, being one of the more robust emotions, is actually rather harmful to our physical and mental health.  Generally, an angry person compels the heart to pump faster, accelerating the blood flow throughout the body and into the brain, resulting in the desire to release the unbearable tension through either physical action or bombastic verbal spillage.  As anger gradually advance itself into our mental realm and decided to reside permanently there, this is when your shrink will advice you to attend anger management classes.

So, how do we manage anger?  Some individual is able to suppress anger.  However, prolonged suppression may lead to unpredictable outburst.  I have to admit that I am innately an angry person, no thanks to my father’s DNA.  Eventually, I realised that anger only blurred the distinction between attaining a sensible solution from an impulsive anger provoked solution.  To remain calm and collected often result in better judgement and decision making.  Once I became aware of the disservice of anger, I am able to disregard anger.  I am not claiming that I am completely anger free for I am only human afterall.

How to disregard anger?  Easy, identify the worthiness of the situation or incident, then ask yourself, is it worth it?  Very often when everything is in perspective, you realised that nothing is worth subjecting your heart to an arduous journey of pumping.  There’s always a solution to every problem.  It may not always be ideal, nevertheless, it still resolves the problem.  Now, it is you yourself that have to move on after resolving the problem.  Being able to let go regardless of how hurtful or deeply disappointed you are is the key to dissipating anger.  Once you are back on the road, never ever look back as life is about moving forward, NOT backward.

To answer my own question, NO, ‘anger’ does not deserve any form of worthiness.
