We can alter our emotions. We can, for example, reduce the emotion of anger from high to low.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In his 1918 classic, 'The Greatest Thing In The World', Henry Drummond wrote, "Hence it is not enough to deal with Temper. We must go to the source, and change the inmost nature, and the angry humours will die away of themselves.

This is true. It is not easy to do, but it can be done. I know from first-hand experience. We can alter our emotional reactions, at least some of them. If anger is one of our natural emotions, and some of us do tend to be that way, we can take steps, over time, to reduce that natural emotion. We know we have reduced our anger-emotion when we no longer feel the chemicals like adrenalin and cortisol flowing.
