I'm easily aggravated and I got most of my aggravation out in football. It helped a lot because I could just smother somebody and usually at the end it's all good and I'm feeling better. But I suffered a REALLY bad knee injury and I'm probably never gonna play again. I'm used to hitting people to get my anger out every Saturday and Friday but now I've lost that. Now all this bad stuff's happening and it's driving me crazy. In football, I was rewarded for hurting people and now I'm hurt. I don't know how to get my aggravation out anymore.
Anger and aggravation are normal emotions that everyone feels. Some people get angry more easily than others, and there's nothing wrong with that. What's important is how you deal with your anger. Tackling someone on the football field is a much better way of dealing with anger than beating someone up or breaking stuff. But playing football isn't about hurting people. The object of the game is to hit and tackle other players to the ground, not to try and hurt or injure another player. If you can't play football any more, you could try getting involved in other sports, such as martial arts or weightlifting, that would allow you to get out your anger. You can also get out some of your rage by going for a long walk, beating up a pillow (they never feel pain), playing video games or cranking up the tunes on your stereo.
You should also talk to a teacher, school counselor, your parents or friends about what's making you angry. When you're a teenager with raging hormones, a changing body and a bunch of stress from school and parents, it's easy to get aggravated. Remember: there's nothing wrong with getting angry. What really counts is how you deal with it.
