      you can also write an angry letter to someone and tear it up or burn it rather than sending it. you can get in your car where no one can hear you and scream. you can pound on a pillow or squeeze a stress ball. or my favorite: go for a walk.

      if after the walk, you still feel the situation requires action, you can then reason through a calm, fair, assertive response and get your needs met without hurting the other person.
