The art of avoiding ventilating anger on othersIt is now called emotional intelligence. A great deal of research in applied behavioural sciences is now flowing into this. It simply refers to the total control of one's emotions, irrespective of the situational variables.
The task is as daunting as it can only be. Our life is often dictated by circumstances beyond our control. For example, in a situation where one has a dirty and selfish boss, who shouts at the individual and plays any number of games to consolidate his own position, and, more often than not, the family members are more interested in the money that comes with the position, the hapless individual would have nowhere to go.
What follows naturally is that we tend to ventilate all anger on our wife, drivers, servant maids and even cooks. They would often wonder why we have all hypertension in the first place. Members who would have controlled their anger through some intelligent methods may share their experiences.
