Rejections and Anger (Part 1 of 2)
There must be reasons
For example, if you are married, you enjoy going to the bar to chat with your friends. And then your husband does not want you to go, and then think why he said no?
Obviously, your husband cares about you since he knows that danger is potentially high at bars. He does not want you to get hurt therefore, he is saying no in your best interest.
If the bank turns you down on a loan there is a legit reason. Maybe your credit report needs some repairing, or maybe they felt you income would not cover the loan amount.
Therefore, your best interest was at heart again. We all hear no throughout our lifetime and most times, it is for the best reasons.
If you apply for a job and are turned down, it might be in your best interest. Since the employers felt that your skills were not on the level that the job required of you.
Alternatively, you may be over qualified for the job and when you are rejected. Maybe the employers are merely saying we do not have the cash to pay you for what you are worth. Thinking positive is always great for managing anger.
Do not get too emotional
If you are prompt to explode when your emotions are interrupted then it is difficult to manage your life. If you are angry most likely, all areas of your life seem like an uphill travel.
When you gain control this often benefits everyone, including yourself. Your life starts to improve and your mind is thanking you for removing stress from its cavity.
If you are prone to beat yourself up when rejections come your way, you might want to find a positive side of your being and enforce it in your mind repeatedly.
Practice, practice, practice
Practice makes perfect. This is a great way to train your mind so that you gain control of your mind and anger. If you are frustrated easily, it is probably because you do not take time out of a day for yourself to relax.
There is nothing wrong with relaxing. Therefore you can sit down for 30 minutes each day and yoga or think of nothing at all.
Finally, we are closing so I wanted to let you know that once you practice the strategies for dealing with anger, pat yourself on the back each time you make effort and achieve.
