"Anger cannot be overcome with anger. If a person shows you anger, and you respond with anger, the result is disastrous. In contrast, if you control the anger and show opposite attitudes - compassion, tolerance, and patience - then not only do you yourself remain in peace, but the other's anger will gradually diminish."

DALAI LAMA



Anger can have a devastating effect on others and on yourself, so it is worth the effort to find the cause of anger and to find anger management techniques that work for you.
