Professor was teaching about Proverbs 15:1. He asked his students, 'why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?' The students thought for awhile. One said, because we lose our calm. But why shout when the other person is just next to you? Asked the professor. Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you are angry? The students gave some answers but none satisfied the Professor. Finally he explained, 'when two people are angry at each other, there is a distance in their hearts psychologically. To cover the distance, they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are,the stronger they will shout to hear each other through that great distance. Then the Professor asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly. Why? Because their hearts are psychologically close. The distance between them is very close. The Professor continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They don't speak, only whisper and they even get closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's all.....So next time you shout on a loved one, know that you are creating distance between your heart and that person's heart. Proverbs 15:1 says a gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."Life is easy"..Stay Blessed..Jesus is LORD.

Anger is one of the strong devices of the devil.

In life in general one thing we have to understand is that people will always hurt us and get on our nerves but how we react and respond is a proof of our maturity, they are some people who intentionally take pleasure ad delight in seeing you hurt, they are glad if you are not fine, it gives them joy, they always look to use your weakness against you, that is why i tell my friends that they should be mindful who they share their secret with because not everyone is their friends, there are some unfriendly friends, i call them wolves in sheep clothing.

@piwizo: I agree with the whole of your point. Though it is not easy not to shout when angry but you can start learning it. You can overcome anger.
