Re: Anger Management

IMHO, while attempting to manage anger by not taking yourself or others too personally or seriously and trying to hear the validity of their point of view not just expressing your own, it sounds like your body was having a fear response based on some internal negative fantasy about what could happen if this escalated into a physical confrontation. Unfortunately, fear usually brings into your life exactly what you are afraid of.

IMHO, the best way to manage anger and fear is not to create it in the first place.
