Anger can be like a run away train
Anger is fueled by emotions which can operate like a run away train. And just like any unguided train, it usually ends at Disaster Junction. This is a place that no one wants to visit. For many of us our anger operates in an explosive uncontrolled mode, this track never leads to a safe destination. Our anger wheels begin to roll, fueled by our adrenaline charged emotions, and perpetuated by momentum always leads to regret. If we only knew a way to keep that train at the station before we decide to move the throttle to full blast, we could have a completely different experience.
When we learn to think before we act, we will always make a better decision. Once we allow our emotions to control our lives, we end up at Disaster Junction, not a good place to be. Anger uncontrolled, means we allow our Amygdla part of the brain to take over. When this happens we are just responding to the anger emotion, but not thinking through our actions; the run away train effect.
Changing the outcome of our anger experience takes awareness and thought at the beginning. Change is not easy, but it can happen if you want it to happen. In the future, make sure you keep good control of the train you are on.
