How do I exercise self control better and not get angry?

Question

How do I exercise self control better and not get angry?

Answer

Anger is a way of dealing with a difficult situation. There are any number of reasons why someone such as you might be feeling angry - parents arguing, stress at school, jealousy of a brother or sister, even hormones (don't underestimate the effect that they can have). Think of how you felt when another person was angry with you and then don't take your anger out on someone else. Walk away - if you are at home go to your bedroom and if you are at school go to church. Next time you feel yourself getting angry the Bible has a few tips on self-control - put up with one another. Forgive and above all put on love, which binds all things together (Colossians 3:12 & 14).
