Aries – Emotional – Root: FURY

It has been a widespread trend in the educational world to measure an individual’s learning according to academic success in cognitive aspects. But the person also possesses a set of skills – emotional intelligence – such as self-control, enthusiasm, perseverance, self-motivation, empathy, which constitute a link between feelings, character, and moral impulses.

Of all the emotional quotient abilities, getting along with others is the one that best contributes to success and satisfaction in life. Peer rejection in childhood contributes to poor academic performance, delinquency, and a variety of emotional problems. But this ability can be taught through intervention and specific activities. Some of these social emotional skills and how they can be taught are outlined here. The most common emotional problem in children is related to anger management. Angry, aggressive, argumentative children represent from 40% to 50% of all clinical referrals.

 The solution lies in emotional reeducation. Emotional control can be taught with the experience provided by positive emotions. Aggressive behavior has three sources: family influences, cultural group influences and measures provided by the media. Some subjects maintain aggressive behavior because they find in it a source of personal pride and even in some cultures aggressive role models are valued.

Anger has a trigger, it is a frustration provoked by the blockage of goals or by the belief that someone is attacking us; but anger is learned, that is to say, this emotion that seems so impulsive is susceptible to be learned, due to the fact that it is a hybrid of psychology and information. When anger dominates reason, it easily leads to an outburst of violence. Faced with this risk, it seems to be proven that there are two ways to reduce the force of anger, consisting of attending to and becoming aware of the thoughts that trigger the first discharge of anger, and another way is to try to give an explanation to the state of irritation in which the person finds him/herself.

Intervention is extremely important, since the sooner it is done, the more effective the results will be. That is to say, the anger can be cut if, before giving it an outlet, we find information to mitigate it. The discharge of anger is also moderated by seeking to change the place or to move away from the cause of the anger by trying to distract oneself. This resource is very effective for any state of mind, and even active exercise helps to subdue anger. What you cannot do is to keep feeding the chain of irritating thoughts because they lead to anger. It is precisely distraction that breaks the irritating chain.

I invite everyone to read Matias’s post with the topic of the day.

Finally, I encourage everyone to reflect on the concept of the day. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
