I used to think that age and getting older in itself was an antidote to anger - where we would automatically get wiser and less a prisoner to angry feelings that can stew or blind our rational judgement. From my observation of people I know I don't think that everyone ages so gracefully. Such angry outbursts can be triggered easily by just a thought, or minor event, comment, perception, memory, etc. Especially for men, anger can take over our limbic system and shut us down and generally be all consuming, often the results would be negative for those around us and for our own long-term health. From experience I would say that persevering with mindful Tai Chi practice over time stabilizes our emotions and gradually releases us from being a prisoner to our reactive anger responses. In particular the Tai Chi practice of "listening, being aware, letting go and relaxing" becomes part of who we are. Not saying that I'm perfect and don't lose it sometimes in the face of pressure, I do, but now I'm much more mindful in choosing my responses.
These are my thoughts about various aspects of Tai Chi. They may or may not be original and I try to give credit where credit is due.
