Lighten up a little.
There is no way around it:  We all get angry from time to time.  But in order to avoid unnecessary stress (and all of the stuff that comes with it), it's not a bad idea to step away and take a deep breath and then carefully examine a situation that angers you before you (over?)react.  Sometimes, just sometimes, our reactions can be based on our own sensitivities about a subject/situation and we find out later that what we thought was awful/insensitive/crazy/hurtful isn't necessarily a personal attack.  Lighten up a little.  And then later if you find the anger is justified, take a proactive approach as opposed to a hysterical approach.  It'll certainly help keep your blood pressure down.

Hi there!

This is great advice!

I have had quite a few women show up at my forum trying to "go off" on me and they were tossed out on their behinds.

It seems that there are plenty of people who think that their anger can be on display any and everywhere without consequence...

I won't even mention Heather Ellis...and the fact that police were called to the scene when she could have (and should have) just walked away from the foolishness at that Walmart.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
