The Book That First Helped Me Deal with My Fiery Temper: Anger, Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat Hanh

I read Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat Hanh a few years back while I was in a struggling relationship filled with anger. Thich Nhat Hanh’s wisdom and insight was a wonderful help.

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 8.22.47 AMDid his techniques completely remove my anger? Nothing is that simple. But his guidance did help which benefited both that relationship, my work relationships and every relationship that has come after.

I still struggle with my temper. I recently picked up Pema Chodrön’s Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears which when combined with that I learned from Anger by Thich Nhat Hanh has been incredible for me.

Do I still lose control? Yes, but far less frequently and I can often remove myself from the situation and return when I am ready to listen and not react emotionally.

If you struggle with anger as I do I highly recommend you start with this book, Anger, learn the techniques and then follow up with Taking the Leap.
