During your late teens, your body is undergoing significant physical and mental changes and you will find yourself very emotional. For some teenagers, this manifests in different ways – for example becoming miserable or withdrawn but others may experience uncontrollable anger.

One of the important things to understand is that you are not alone and this is not a unique experience. It is part of your transition to adulthood.

However, some good news: there are several ways you can help yourself during this difficult time.

The first step is to understand the causes of your anger. This anger, for most teenagers always seems to be directed at those we love the most – and all too often this is our parents or figures of authority. The underlying cause is not actually the person who you are angry against (their inability to understand or their desire to seemingly control you) but you yourself!

You are experiencing physical emotions which you are unable to control. It is this feeling of being out of control that angers you – not the so-called trigger of the scolding from your father for example. And after you have calmed down you become frustrated (and perhaps privately ashamed) at having become so disproportionately angry. This in itself makes you angry and so the cycle begins again.

Once you understand this and recognise this cycle you will find that the anger itself starts lowering in intensity. You will also begin to start seeing the consequences of your anger on the people around you. You may even begin to start communicating and sharing this with your parents.

It is also important to try to restrain oneself when one is angry. Similar to a fire which will keep on growing if you are try to extinguish it with petrol. It will only inflame the situation.

In conclusion, people think anger is a way for one to use to try to dominate others. But in reality, it is a sign of weakness. One becomes weak whilst holding onto one’s own opinions. Therefore, overcoming anger is actually a strength.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
