7 Secrets to Drain that ANGER You’ve Been Holding Onto

One of my heroes passed away recently.

He was an author, a speaker, a teacher, a counselor, and one of the most profoundly practical men I’ve ever had the chance to be around.

We all get angry sometimes! It's a part of life. But, how are we to deal with it? Here's a practical article on how to deal with anger issues and the art of letting them go.

7 Secrets to Drain that ANGER You’ve Been Holding Onto

His name was Gary Smalley, and he spent his life investing in other people’s lives–like mine!

His books include classics such as The Blessing, For Better or For Best, The Key to Your Child’s Heart, and many others. 

One of my favorites was a book that he wrote years ago for couples. It’s called Making Love Last Forever.

We actually read the book and completed the study as a young married couple while living in Atlanta, GA.

Contained within this wonderful marriage study is a chapter on how to deal with anger. Specifically, this chapter teaches husbands and wives how to “drain the anger” in their hearts.

However, husbands and wives aren’t the only people who have to learn to diffuse anger.

All of us must deal with emotions like anger, bitterness, envy, jealousy, forgiveness, and hurt feelings.

Sometimes, we don’t even realize how hurt and angry we are over a situation.

Today, I’d like to “tell” on myself.

There was a time, not so long ago, when I realized I was holding onto a great deal of anger towards someone.
