How to deal with particular sins: Temper

Temper is controlling your mood/emotions, or at least your reactions to them. Anger may be the chief problem among temper, thus in most need of correction. 

“When you get angry next time and speak unkindly to a person and realise it, go and ask that person to forgive you. You won’t get mad with that person for the next twemty-four hours. You might do it in about forty-eight hours, but go the second time. After you’ve done that about half a dozen times, you’ll change your behaviour, because apologizing makes old flesh burn.” (1)
