The angry young woman
“Sir, I am a working woman. I am facing a miserable life condition due to my anger and irritation. I have to cook food for my two school-going children, my husband, and his parents. No one is here to help me in the morning chore. Even the servant woman comes late when I finish all my work. When I am busy in the kitchen my in-laws also get up and ask for coffee. Kids won’t listen to me and not properly organized. My husband also pressurizes me while I work. I leave the house at around 8.30 AM on the company bus. Some male co-workers make an advance to me while traveling and in the office, it’s also totally irritating. My boss is also a mean person, unnecessarily pressurize me. Many times I feel like a pressure cooker about to burst from inside. I am not able to cope up with this. When I read a few articles on your website, I felt like you can help me. Please spend a few minutes addressing this issue, Sir. How to manage my anger and irritation?” a pretty long question from a reader.
It is normal for people to get angry. But if it persists more than 30 seconds, it will turn into a disease.
Our ancestors, especially Krishna, said: “From anger arises delusion, from delusion, comes memory-loss, from loss of memory, the intellect is destroyed. When the intellect destroyed means loss of reason (lack of discrimination) which ruins a person!” (Gita).
Science says anger is a chemical reaction of hormones and neurotransmitters. It triggers increased platelet activation and thrombosis, increases vulnerability to illnesses, compromises the immune system. The results are very dangerous.
