Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Kevin Majeres talks about anger, and what we can learn about the emotion and what to do with it from the Bible, St. Thomas Aquinas, and neuroscience.
Top Three Take-Aways
1. Ask yourself “How angry am I?” Observe the anger, think about it, so you can be objective before you act.
2. Preserve the bond. Think about being Christ to the person, not punishment.
3. Work on virtue! Meekness (strength under control) is the antidote to anger (strength out of control).
