When you fear a confrontation in which you might become angry, mentally picture yourself handling it calmly and self-confidently. Keep repeating this picture in your mind until you feel fairly certain that you will be able to remain calm in the actual situation.
When you are walking or waiting in a line, utilize the opportunity to think of difficult situations, and find various options you have to deal wisely in those situations. If you live those situations in your mind, they can serve as positive resources from which to gain confidence in your abilities.
Today a nice elderly lady fought with me about the fact she wanted to move a class to another room even though I was in charge. No matter how nice I was she disagreed with me, and therefore she must be right. It is always easier to preach than practice, but I did my best and held my ground. She didn't apologize, but at least I fought with her lovingly.
