I saw this computer social media post today from one of my computer social media friends that said “How many people use the energy of their anger to get what they want instead of just getting angry?” With that thought and question, I begin this article. I go with this answer to that question: I do not get angry anymore, I just channel that energy usually to uses where I need and want it in that order. I mean, what is the use of getting too serious or too disappointed about anything, when it uses up valuable time and energy? Well, there is not any use to that sort of action except to waste away time losing valuable composure in useless anger.
Here is what is useful though: Dealing with problems productively and creatively whatever the situation instead of getting angry or fearfully serious. Last night, I had a object lesson in that fact when I had to copy one major hard drive on my computer to another major hard drive on my computer, and it took until this morning until it was done. Now, sure, one of my hard drives had to be erased because of the integrity of the files, but luckily I creatively keep lots of back up material with all the same files, so I was not hurting. I say all this to give you an object example of how I usually deal with problems, for indeed, I realize that there is not any genuine productive use to getting genuinely angry in any situation.
The “blow up” is never realistically productive anyhow. All you do is explode, and then what? Usually you feel like a fool that expended valuable energy that did nothing except to get angry. The “get up” is the only realistically productive solution: What I mean by the “get up” is when you approach a situation that usually elicits anger from you, catch yourself and then realistically and productively start over when possible. That is the “get up”. I know, it looks harder than the “blow up” in the small picture. But to productively get up, dust yourself off and start again in the big picture is always better than blowing up in anger. Why do you think I mentioned something like a computer hard drive melt down anyhow?
So, if you can, think before you get angry and then take steps to rectify the situation or start over fresh, you will ultimately be glad you did.
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
Almost automatically, when you start over you have that new level of consciousness anyhow. Think about that. I did not say it was totally automatic though, but a fresh perspective can help solve problems, though.
