Anger Management How It Affects Us and How We Deal With It

Benjamin Franklin once said, "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes,"  We would like to add a third item to his list: anger.  Anger can be an incredibly damaging force, costing people their jobs, personal relationships, and even their lives when things get out of hand.  However, since everyone experiences anger, it is important to have constructive approaches to manage it effectively.

I rarely get angry, but when I do it'd due to certain triggers, i.e. impoliteness, inefficiency, incompetence, swearing, vulgarity and filth.  I feel the anger creeping up on me and I control it with breathing, to calm and then try to be non-reactive to the surroundings and the people.

What are your anger triggers?  How do you deal with or try to  control your anger, or do you?  I'd be interested to know from you, how you cope with this constant in our lives.  Also, give me your thoughts on how anger affects us becoming the best version of ourselves.
