Tempering your anger does not come naturally to humans. We are emotional creatures who are made to feel a wide variety of feelings, such as anger, joy, love, hate, compassion, and sympathy. However, we can also feel jealousy and covetousness. Humans are no doubt complicated, which can be said for our emotions as well.

MORE TIPS ON HOW TO MANAGE YOUR ANGER AS A COUPLE
Let Go of the Past
As humans, we all make mistakes. That is how we learn. After all, from the moment you were born, you had to learn to crawl, to walk, to talk, and to ride a bike. All of this took time, practice, and learning from failure. The same goes with learning how to navigate the waters of human emotion. Anger management has to be learned by most people, and most people won’t get it right the first time. When your loved one makes a mistake, don’t hold it against them, nor bring it up in every argument you have. Instead, learn to forgive, and then let the grudge and anger go. Not only will you be a happier person, but you’ll have a happier life with your significant other as well.
Put Relaxation Techniques in Place
As mentioned above, you’re not born with an innate sense of how to manage your anger. In fact, it can be extremely challenging. However, there are skills you can learn to help you with anger management. You can exercise, which will help you release stress. Stress can be a big part of what is causing your anger. Or, you can practice relaxation techniques as well, such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. Some people find listening to classical music relaxing or journaling their feelings. Wendy Inglehart recommends finding what works for you.
Seek Professional Help if Need Be
Sometimes you just need a third party to step in and help you and your significant other with anger management. Counselors are trained in many methods that can help equip you with the tools you need to end the fighting and the emotional outbursts.
