Mouth works faster than mind

I liked a comment from a dear friend PP about anger:
She wrote: Anger is when the mouth works faster than one's mind
Turning the kindest soul into a monster unkind 
One of the basest of emotions.....leads us to shame
Tho conveniently on our hormones we blame!
Disfigures the heart....and defaces the face
Can rightly be called a curse on the human race!
Journalist Joy Raphael wrote:  “Change your focus when you are angry. I should have done that long ago when I too got constantly angry at the boss. Now don't ask where it happened.”
BK Chowla of Delhi insists: “There is only one instant way to get relief from anger...when you get symptoms,take a long deep breath.”
Dear blog friend Sujata Sengupta asked: What do you do to control your anger?
I got many angry times and it had always gone against me. Hey, know what, forgiveness is divine.  My dear blog friends will remember when I mentioned that years ago when I was leaving Mumbai for the Gulf, I was behaving strangely rudely with a dear Kolkata friend of mine, Bhadra. That guilt remained and many blog friends wrote that my goodwill will help. Last month, I and Bhadra had a coffee session in Vashi, Mumbai. Back as friends. 


  1. Quotable quotes of course! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I don't know about changing your focus but I always find counting to 10 (20 if need be) helpful.

  3. that is so sweet..Forgiveness...

  4. Good post, Ramesh. I sort of think differently...I think anger as an emotion is also essential for our emotional development. It is how you express the anger that may be the reason for hurting others. It is natural for feel anger and it should not be suppressed cause anger is often an indication that things are not as they should be . Of course now am talking of a rational anger, not the irrational one that some type of personalities have...ok now am ranting....lol

  5. I wrote such a long comment but it got deleted ..:( Anyway, I believe anger is one of the essential emotions that are important for our mental health. It is however, important to channelise it in a proper way and express it in a way that we do not hurt others. Good post!

  6. You are right, Ramesh. Good to hear that all's well with you and your friend.

  7. Nice post..
    Glad that you met your friend after many years..you must be relieved now.

  8. hmmmm well I have been in positions where I have not been able to control my anger and things have gone bad .. so controlling anger is a musttttt
