1misanthropist : "How to never be Angry again " Simple: Never come into contact with humans again.

JJ K : This man is so wise, I'm sure he could tell me why my girlfriend is mad at me.

Charles Dahmital : I believe it was Confucius that said (paraphrased) Harboring anger is like swallowing a poison and waiting for the other person to die.

Citizenthirteen : The 4th stage is when you take a baseball bat to the person who made you really angry.  Not the smartest response but man it's the best 10 minutes of your life.

Béatrice de Laat : There’s even a proverb, that says ; « One minute of anger, costs us 100 minutes of shame »


Micka Datwist : anger is a natural human reaction. If u wont get angry at times ur dead

Sholom Shwarzberg : Everyone has issues. At some point you learned that as a kid it's accepted to be mean sometimes. But as you grew you realized that if you want to be happy and have relationships you must learn to be a nicer person. The problem arises when people have a tough transition. Whoever's fault that is is irrelevant. It could be they dropped out of school, or maybe their parents put them in bad situations that they couldn't cope with, or maybe they were in great situations but they just had a hard time putting it into action. Regardless of how it happened, these people are hurting. As a kid the bully is the big guy with all the money and he seems to be the happiest, but as we grow we realize that the bullies are the weakest. They lack respect for themselves. They don't know how to cope with emotions and in turn release it on their loved ones. Heck, I don't think you're perfect. I'm sure that there are those days you come home and start letting loose on the people you love. Maybe I'm wrong, but unless it's a focus to work on, we all do the same on some level. Maybe not all the time, maybe not to the same extent as the"mean guy", but we do it. I learnt this from a teacher "if I see a flaw in someone else, then I possess that trait. Even if it's only a bit." And I hate to say it, but every time I remember that after I get upset at someone, I see that negative trait in myself, and it's not just on a small scale. To end this I'd like to say that there's a reason it's so hard to control yourself. Because it's worth it. If it's worth it then it will take hard work. Believe in the goal and fight. Life will get allot happier for you. Good luck :)

Django Mango : 2:07 : "harboring your resentment is allowing someone who you don't like to live inside your head without paying any rent"

Michael Angelus : I became angry at a rattle snake for biting me. The snake died.

Meno Passini : Chinese proverb; the one to raise their voice first in an argument, loses. In Asia culture confrontation is looked down on. They accept the fact the some things will not be resolved. Very few lawyers in Japan, U.S. very high ratio, because we are taught to get our way at all costs. A Chinese business owner told me, the first thing he noticed about Americans, they waste so much time being right. If you make a general comment in passing, they immediately jump on it and state how that is wrong. The Asia will not react to the American's gotcha moment. The American takes the Asia's nonresponse as if he won something. The Asia looks at the American as foolish person, for making an issue out of nothing. Common American terms; Going Postal, Triggered, Ballistic. .

Penguins for the cup : Kinda hard to not be angry when youre depressed af. Just seeing other people happy makes me mad.

Jan Sveen : Most of my anger concerns me, nobody else to blame but me.

djvasforever : Meditation helps. When all said and done it comes down to directing attention to your being angry and finding better ways of handling it and at night brain plays it over and "installs" the new solution bit by bit. Very simple.

Argiod Silvertongue : The way I put it is: So long as I am angry at/with someone, THEY still have ME by the short hairs. I am not free until I let go of my anger and replace it with compassion for someone who is on a different spiritual path than my own. It's very much in line with Buddhist philosophy of Compassion for ALL living things. In Taoist terms, the 'Way' is whatever way is right for YOU. Everyone has their own path. Each must navigate it themselves; though, I have found that a certain amount of unstructured wandering off the path can be a delightful way to understand the path; and can be an excellent path in and of itself. Around any corner along any path there can be marvelous sights to be seen and experiences to delight our senses. The only true freedom is within our minds, hearts and souls. The rest is window dressing.

Bubbl3Bubbl3gum : Provide evidence. He is claiming in-depth psychological knowledge, but it all sounds like random stuff anyone with 2 brain cells can come up with.

Ray Ray : There is nothing wrong with anger. This guy a total liar.

Maryrose Mitchell : Well you actually left off the first stage of anger. It's the thought! The feelings come after the thought. Once we become mindful we can separate the thought from the feeling and often times we never even get to the feeling. we see the thought for what it is and we allow it to float by without attaching to it or taking it personally. When we become extremely conscious and mindful we simply don't mind what happens in life . we don't resist. Anger is resistance of what is. Mindfulness and meditation are the best ways 2 learn how to let go of anger.

Roger McFaddin : This video made me angry.

Jason Wheneger : The title is severely dishonest to this man's experience and philosophy, and is overall an insult to his wisdom.

Axel Vasa : Anger saves lives,,,,

MrMhtmht : Eurasian people thinking about the reason of life, african people only thinking of how to twerk. It's always been like that. And don't come with some already-eurasian-mixed afro-americans.

Yvonne Mariane : I'd straight-up change the name if i were you.. i don't want to subscribe to something w that word in it (contains much pain) just cuz i hate seeing it constantly under the person talking. This is the first video I see on this channel and I may not be a rarity: just find that name unappealing/offesnive.. Even "word gratification" would be okay .. course I don't even know the mojo yet of this channel, so suggesting a new name is premature..JUST got here lol ..

Richard James : Why on Earth would you never want to be angry again ? Anger is a perfectly natural response to threats in the environment. Without Anger you are always going to be a weak victim.

TheGrandMasterFunk : i pitty tha fool -

Sean McGrew : I had to stop watching this cause it made me feel angry

Kermit O Corretor De Gramática : 1:46 PRAISE THE SUN

Cam Dempsey : Wise words and since everyone else is throwing in their 2 cents I guess I will too . Anger is often a result of provocation from someone that desires it as a reaction to manipulate you. Another good qoute I heard that not only relates to anger but also grief or shame any negative feeling someone wants you to feel is this "There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally".This person wants my reaction to control me I won't give it to them,not to be obstinate or control them ,but because my life is easier and free ignoring their petty shit. I may never see this idiot again and even if I did are they so important that I will let my anger make this pointless fool the centre of my universe for however long?Nah sorry I have better stuff to do with my life.

LadyJAtheist : My mother's mantra, with regards to the stupid, or irresponsible, or ignorant behavior of others was simple: "If they knew better, they'd do better." Goodness knows I miss her like crazy but I'm glad she's not alive to see the direction we're headed, where people DO know better but they choose to embrace their ignoble qualities rather than putting forth the energy to find their inner nobility and take the high road. Yes, sadly, sometimes this applies to myself as well.

Raymond jose Lazaro : I dont overanalize, i use anger to my advantage, so far so good

B L : If I am enraged, it doesn't hurt the other person as much as it hurts me.

Albin Lajtinger : Tell that to Kratos

Sam Lockhart : Anytime someone makes me angry, I like to imagine it like they have drawn a sword on me and aimed it at my heart. Instead of turning the sword back on the other person, or trying to get rid of it (because that usually just leads to repressed anger that ends up blowing up in other ways), I like to imagine myself taking that sword from the other person, turning it outward, and then walking away with it, to fight future battles with whatever new knowledge about them, myself, or human nature their offense has given me.

Armando Cardona : BRILLIANT. Wise beyond measure, a rare combination of rabbi and philosopher. Best advice I've read in a very long time. God bless.

follow Jesus! : you have much to learn Young Grasshopper! ♡

Roozo411 : This guys pissin me off

GentLeman : While watching this video i clicked it away because i got angry that he talks so slow ╭┈┈┈┈╯   ╰┈┈┈╮  ╰┳┳╯    ╰┳┳╯        :droplet:

MRJUAN23 EL MEROMERO : Ive figured out that if you just worry about what effects me. The rest dosent matter. Focus on your own life instead of others and mind your own business.

kross51788 : won't let anyone live in his head for free....typical Jew lol jk jk it's just a joke don't take it so seriously .

Mickey Jewnyear : not that kinda guy to let somebody live rent free...cause hes a jew

Diego Cervantes : Anger is normal

jeff kennedy : i choose to hold on to my anger and maintain it at a manageable level despite my good nature urging me to let go of it altogether. why? because letting go of it is basically going back to the state of where i was before acquiring it, thus inviting the source of it to strike me again and spike my rage levels to new and unprecedented heights. Doesn't mean letting go never works, but it becomes pointless if the cycle keeps repeating itself.

John Rildo : An interesting exercise to control the mind, however, there are times when you should be angry and use that anger to motivate you to do things you need to get done. Otherwise, you might just get too lazy and never accomplish anything.

Ilya Kravchik : This is the psychology of the weak and powerless who can not do anything about the things that make them angry, so they choose to internalize them and come up with clever placebos to trick the mind. You are angry for a reason,- something is wrong. You need to fix or change something. We evolved from predatory apes, for thousands of years we hunted and fought in order to survive, anger is as much a part of our psyche as joy and love. Trying to repress anger is shortsighted and naive. Anger is a powerful energy, and if you can't mend what is making you angry, go to the gym, play the crap out of your drum kit, run, or hike, do something active, write a poem or a screenplay, in other words let it out, but don't pretend that anger is simply not there. Stop lying to yourself that you are benevolent and domesticated like a neutered cat.

PianistMiskoV : Omniscient rabbi

Kid Carlomagno : Supress your emotions and deny your human condition is harmful for your mental and physical health

ReCell02 : once u understand that ego you have is from the veiechle u r in that has no real power over you u will never feel angry again. But u might never feel happy as well so Its better not to open 3rd eye sometimes

Ideas of Success : He is definitely an amazingly intelligent man. Thanks for the input.

brandon west : This is pretty pornograghically insightful

Horse Fro : This may work with you but I feel like you can't Cure my Bi Polarism neither will you Cure my feelings of hating my self for being Bi polar, being Bi polar I feel I won't be able to enjoy life to the fullest I'm only 13 and I'm already feeling like my life won't go far, and I've learned being Bi polar won't help me in life
