How long one can remain angry?There is enough talk about anger management and many threads were posted earlier on this topic so I am not going to repeat it again with some new ideas to control anger. I am sure you can control your anger well and hope you are also not angry while reading this thread. Think of your facial expression in a place where the situation or interaction with an official made you very angry. I am sure nobody can hide their anger during a heated exchange and it can be easily recognised from the expression on their face that a person is angry. Now the question is how long you can remain that much angry in any situation. Suppose, if someone makes a comment at that time to distract you or do something funny that makes everyone laugh are you still going to maintain that facial expression of anger? The same thing is applicable at home too when you become angry for a certain reason. If somebody cracks a joke at that time or mimics you at home will the anger lessen or you will increase your shouting? Think of such situations and let's see what is coming out.
I think one has to work hard to make such a facial expression during anger. Whereas, a relaxed look, possibly with a smiling face, is something which is quite easy to make.
