I was watching a couple of episodes of “Fawlty Towers” last night and was struck as always by John Cleese’s ability to portray extreme frustration in a really funny manner. Everyone these days seems to have a shorter fuse than in the past. Is this because we are less controlled or because the way in which we live our lives inevitably leads to more frustration, more anger and more swearing?
I wrote an article a few years ago about the number of people who do “Basil Fawlty impressions” whilst on the golf course. This is a clear case of your own thoughts and expectations leading to tension, frustration and anger. No-one else has caused this pressure; the golf course and the weather are not conspiring together to destroy your day. You created your own anger through your own thoughts, and so if you want to stop getting angry on the golf course you have to learn to control your thoughts.
Then theres the number of “road rage” cases these days. I even noticed a couple of years ago a special hotline being advertised for people to call to complain about the number of traffic cones on the motorway; apparently this service was available to try to let drivers vent the anger and frustration which they were experiencing as a result of road works. Too many accidents were being caused by angry drivers either not paying attention to their driving or just becoming too angry to drive competently.
This is what happens when you become angry; you become incompetent because your anger stops you from thinking clearly. A red mist does quite literally take over your mind – the higher cortical regions of your brain are effectively bypassed as the primitive emotional regions take over. It is important to learn how to change state, to be able to step back from this emotional fog to then be able to once again think clearly and productively.
Not only is it noticeable how many people seem to get angry at the slightest thing, it is also noticeable how freely so many of us swear. I have even had clients book hypnotherapy sessions to aid them in stopping swearing because swearing has become such an automatic habit. I’m glad that these people had the presence of mind to take steps to change their habit. It is not nice to be the person on the receiving end of anger, frustration or swearing, but neither is it comfortable or good for the health and well being of the person whose temper is bubbling over.
It has been shown that water subjected to swearing or angry tonality will form ice crystals which are uneven and jagged, whilst water subjected to calm words and tonality form beautiful, symmetrical and delicate crystals. Considering that the human body is made up of a rather large percentage of water, can you imagine the impact upon your own health and well being if you waste your time and energy on anger, tension, frustration and swearing?
