Rage! Why do we get this way?

Updated on July 26, 2014

Rage!

Rage, Why do we feel this way?

Anger is a monster

hidden within oneself.

Rage how does it manifest?

One day you feel so good,

yet the next day you feel so angry.

Rage comes in all forms.

Rage can occur when driving.

You know? When you get cut off

by an inconsiderate driver.

Rage can occur at your job.

Your asked to do so much,

and given little in return.

Rage can occur at anytime.

It comes on all of a sudden,

One minute you feel fine.

Then suddenly you are angry.

Why do our emotions

play tracks with us?

Rage can occur

at the grocery store.

There's never enough cashiers.

The wait on line seems endless.

Rage can occur when your family

wants so much of you,

yet gives very little in return.

Rage can occur at the bank.

You wait in line

for a simple transaction.

But no this is impossible,

because the person in front of you

has problems with his or her transaction.

Rage can occur when all you want is quiet.

Impossible with all the noise

that surrounds you.

Rage can be harmful to your well being.

It causes high blood pressure,

increased stress

and puts you in a bad mood.

Rage is like misery,

it likes company.

If you are around a person

with rage and anger,

you begin to feel the same way.

But why you ask?

Because Rage is hidden

it is in all of us.

It is waiting for the right moment.

When that moment occurs, look out!

Your nasty, mean and angry.

Ready to yell at the first person you see.

Rage can cause arguments,

physical altercations

and the potential to do actually harm.

Rage is a negative emotion.

It will manifest so quickly

and once over,

it's gone.

Have you ever felt Rage?

Does something trigger it?

If so, how do you control it?

The most sweetest person,

kindness person can suddenly

turn into a raving lunatic.

But why?

Rage can ruin your life.

Leave you without family,

friends, good health,

money and jobless.

The only way to combat

this evil feeling

is to learn to cope.

Cope with the triggers

that cause you such rage.

However, this is not an easy

thing to do.

Don't let Rage ruin your life.

Don't let it interfere with

your overall well being.

If you do, well

you may find yourself

alone!

Signs of Rage

  1. Lack of Patience
  2. Inability to cope
  3. Frustrated
  4. Feelings of Anger
  5. High Blood Pressure
  6. Extreme Stress
  7. Sweating
  8. Yelling
  9. No Empathy
  10. No Compassion
  11. Hurtful words
  12. Racing Pulse
  13. Racing Heartbeat
  14. Wanting to hit something
  15. Wanting to break something
  16. Full Blown Explosion of Emotions

What to do?

If you are like most people, then at one time or another you had experienced the signs of rage. The truth is society is not immune to having days when we feel angry, frustrated and want to scream. This is a natural part of our emotions. The key to preventing a full blown explosion of coping with Rage is to stop it in its track. Step back from your emotions. Find out why you are so angry. Learning who or what triggers these negative emotions can prevent further situations when you lose control. Sure, we all have bad days at work. Sure, our families can make us nuts. Sure, we give to much and never seem to get enough in return. The questions I ask; Do these natural occurring things in our life justify the emotion of Rage and Anger? Does the end, justify the means? What consequences will occur if we give in to our negative emotions? Is it really worth it?

      I must say that i rarely have any rage, but boy oh boy i used to have it badly. I have learned that rage only hurts you and the people you love. I stop, take a deep breath and meditate while listening to mystic music. It works everytime. I enjoyed reading your thoughts. Thank you

      I don't know the last time I've felt rage. I'm a pretty even tempered person, but I can appreciate the emotion in others. I just tend to stay away from them when they are feeling that way.

      I think you're right. We all have this monster called rage bottled up in side of us, and some of us control it better than others. Great hub.

      Thank you vocalcoach for reading this hub. Rage is a scary behavior that can lead to more negative behaviors. We all need to control it before it controls us.

      Hi,

      I have worked with people who had an issue with rage and I was amazed they were not terminated. Anyone who can not control their behavior in a professional manner would not work for me.

      I do not treat people in such a manner and I do not put up with them doing it to me.

      A parent who acts this way does vast harm to their children, and should seek help asap.

      You did a great job on bring this information to us---I am hopeful it will help the people dealing with rage.

      I will share with my Twitter Friends and put this on my re-pin board at Pinterest.

      Dressage it is scary when those with rage lose control. It is both emotional and physical abuse.

      The bad part is most people learn the behavior from their parents. They don't learn how to cope with it or stop it, since the parents don't know how to deal with it themselves.
