How to deal with a partner with temper issues

Gunday

Is your partner prone to explosive anger? Does he fly off the handle on the slightest pretext? If yes, you are certainly in a world of pain. In fact, dealing with your partner's angry outbursts can take a severe toll on your overall well-being. But if you lose your cool as well, there might be no permanent solution to your problem. Here are some basic steps that you need to take to help yourself deal with a partner who is in need of anger management:

Stay calm
Of course it's easier said than done. But when you sense that your partner is about to see red, keep your calm. Don't try to outshout him. Wait for his outburst to subside and then go for a discussion about what actually triggered his anger.

Dealing with victimhood
If he is angry and resentful because he always sees himself as a victim, try to talk to him gently about why such a mindset will only do him harm. Tell him that nobody is perfect in this world and everyone has to suffer injustice at various points in their lives.

Stop the blame game
A person who's prone to anger is also likely to put the blame for everything on you. Again, stand your ground and explain blame games can only hurt a relationship. Tell him that there can be no progress if a couple cannot rise above blaming each other for everything that goes wrong.

Heart talk
Make every effort to let him know how his anger is hurting you. Tell him that it's imperative that both partners should learn to be compassionate to each other. The need of the hour is to fight the problem together for the benefit of both.

Extreme measures
If efforts fail and he refuses to go for therapy or otherwise, perhaps it's time to ponder why you should tether yourself to him at all after all this.
