For me I have trouble with my anger. I been told that anything physical like excise wares out anger feelings in a person.
When I feel or felt I've lost control and it can be real or made up, unconscious inclination, of betrayed trust, and having trouble recognizing my emotions, my old pattern or thinking kicks in a split second.
When growing up and not trusting anyone, and doing everything for myself, I was in control of everything.
My younger behavior around my brothers and sisters would be like a "mother hen". They told me to leave them alone, when we was at a teenagers age, they wanting their freedom from my mothering.
That lead me into having nothing to do with my self. It was hard to just let go of my family. I took up drugs and alcohol to cope.
So when I dried out, I still wanted to mother hen everything, be in charge still.
If I didn't, I'd get mad. I'd get unreasonably mad for a parking ticket, for parking wrong in the first place.
Because I keep feeling like I want to be in charge and I'm not, the world doesn't move around me. I have to let go. Things happen without me.
And crying oh how much I wanted to control my crying, at first I was a mess, but after I let my self go and cry, I can now feel sad at times but not balling my eyes out.
Over all, controlling anger is good but find a balance after peaks and valleys get to be a pathway along the road of life.

Pray God to help with a willingness,
in the serenity prayer to start.
Recognizing two- emotions and patterns.
Then rethink ways of dealing with.
