Bad Mix

June 14, 2010

I wish I had a quarter for every time that I heard a terrible tragedy linked to alcohol or anger. I'd be rich!

Today I read the sad story of Ludjana Dido, 20, who died early Saturday morning. She had been out the night before having dinner and hanging with some of her friends. Early Saturday morning, her crew got into a shouting match with group of guys and one girl. Things escalated, spilled outside onto the street, and Ludjana Dido's life ended. Six months pregnant, Ludjana was mowed down by a car.

The two groups were drinking, and what started as a disagreement proceeded to pushing and shoving. Ludjana was struck by a car and the driver is believed to be involved in the incident. It's amazing how alcohol destroys one's self-control. Add anger to the mix and you've got a recipe for disaster.

The Apostle Paul asked the following question: "Don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you received from God?" (1 Cor. 6:19). Putting things in our bodies that cloud our thinking is sooooo not a good idea. But that's not all.

If we don't learn to control our anger, who knows what can happen when we lose control. I remember my struggle with anger growing up. Sometimes I'd get so angry that I'd have to lie down, because my head would be about to explode. I finally gave it to God and asked Him to help me calm down, and He did. I also noticed that once I changed my diet--I became a vegetarian--my anger was not nearly as fierce as it had been. Food isn't the total solution, but eating right helps to regulate your emotions.

How do you deal with your anger? Do you punch walls, lash out, curse, praying, tell a friend? How do you stay calm? Share your secret with the rest of us.
