How Can Aggression Be Controlled
Have there been times where you have felt really angry and have not known what to do about the overwhelming emotions? Have you ever suppressed your anger so much that after a while you had an outburst of aggression? Well, this is normal and there are many ways you can work on controlling all this emotion and preventing any further outbursts.
Everyone feels anger. There may be certain situations or people that trigger this emotion in you. It is not always feasible to take this anger out by being aggressive. For example, you may feel like screaming at someone who made you angry. Instead, there are some healthy practices you can try to control this aggression, while also letting your feelings out.
You can take part in catharsis in which you release your pent up emotions in different ways. Some people prefer to cry and let out all their emotions in the form of tears. Others may scream into a pillow or scribble on a piece of paper. You may partake in what feels right to you and in whichever activity you feel is most effective for you.
Talking therapy is also very helpful in these situations. If someone has made you feel very angry and you feel the need to talk about it, you can always approach a trusted friend or family member and recall the events that made you feel this way. Almost always you will feel lighter like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Going to therapy also provides a space where you can talk freely about anything that makes you feel any type of way. Some people find writing therapy very suitable. You can keep a diary to express your emotions without any judgment.
Practicing catharsis daily can help you manage your emotions in a healthy manner, even if t is just five minutes a day. If you feel like you have a lot of pent up aggression, trying these methods is definitely worth a try.
