Try to control the dangerous emotion yourself !

Anger is one of the most dangerous emotions, but one of the easiest to understand. 
However, before we understand its origins and causes, it is important to remind ourselves that it is always our own creation. It is an emotion which we create as part of our response to what we perceive (understand) is happening around us. As we shall see, no one can actually make us angry, although, like all our other emotional states, it seems as if they do. Anger is also a very painful emotion and we are suffering when we create it. And yet many people believe it is good to be angry sometimes. They even think it is healthy. But the truth is, the evidence has been increasing for some time that anger kills - it is directly connected to heart disease and cancer, and there are now many clinics, which treat patients’ physical illnesses by helping them understand and transform (change) their anger.
