I had a very bad day in my office. My boss got mad on me only for a little issue.

Not a big problem actually. But his anger really made me sick and lost my courage to do my tasks during that whole day.

I tried to lift up my working spirit but unable to do it.
The word of my boss was as sharp as a sword, hit my mind strictly, and made me down.
I talk to myself, "This is the consequence of being an employee. Do not grumble or complain. All employees around the world will exactly experience the same things, only in vary type. Some are even much worst."

My boss was also in a very bad mood at that day. Everyone around him was hit by this angry man. No matter what they do, right or wrong. All will be considered as a guilty one.

The effect of this anger is really bad for everyone. As for me: it can discourage my whole working day, for others perhaps can cause a high blood tension.



One single word, but have a very big impact, once it is appeared.
It is like the domino effect.
A person, who gets this anger, usually will find another victim to explode the angry feeling. And so on.. and so on.
Until everyone get disappointed and frustrated.

What we can do if we get this anger is trying not to get involved in the angry circumstance.

➔Take a deep breath
➔Count slowly one until ten
➔Think logically about the matter
➔Analyze the problem, try to solve it 

Hopefully these steps can slowdown the burning tension of the anger chain.


  1. I feel for you. Having a bad boss makes every day that much more of a struggle.

    At least you have your writing to turn to as an enjoyment and stress reliever.

    Good luck on the A to Z Challenge - one letter down, 25 to go!

    1. yes Cindy
      writing can sometimes release our burden.
      Have a nice blogging month!

  2. Anger solves nothing and gets us nowhere. It's all bad energy. Your advice is rock solid.

    It's nice to meet you, Cherie! I'm a new follower via the A to Z.

    1. Hi Nancy,

      It's nice to meet you, although only on blogwalking.

      Thanks for coming by.

  3. It's strange, isn't it, how emotions can transfer... one person gets angry, and it makes it easier for the next person to get angry, and the next person they encounter after THAT picks it up too...

    On the plus side, I think it works with positive emotions too. Share a smile with a stranger, and they pass that smile on to someone else, and so on...

    I hope your week gets better!

    In Which We Start Anew

    1. Let's spread the positive aura only, not the bad one.
      Then we can live in a brighter world.

      Have a better day Jo..

  4. Hi Cherie - the wonderful ladies ahead of me have summed it up nicely...anger get us nowhere and it is sad that your boss cannot control his anger. He is setting a very poor example of leadership.

    This was a great "A" post - I look forward to seeing what comes next.

    1. The bad selfcontrol is the only weakness of him actually.
      too bad for all of the staff here.

      Thanks for the A-Z challenge.

  5. Oh man, I'm sorry you had a bad day yesterday. :(

    Anyway, I'm glad I found you (couldn't find your blog link before). So cool we share the same name! :D Good luck with the challenge!

    1. two ladies with the same Cherie name, will have the same luck in the same challenge...:D

  6. I just popped over for the A-Z Challenge, & I'm sorry to hear you had a bad day.

    I love this quote by Viktor Frankl - 'between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom'.
    I try to think of this, rather than responding to anger with similar behaviour :)

    1. hi Anita,

      I have erased that bad day from my mind already.

      Thanks for popping to joyfulcherie.
