My religious beliefs bring me peace and help me to get through life. I'm interested in learning about atheist mental techniques for dealing with life's dilemmas. What do you do when you experience unwanted emotions such as anger, fear, regret, embarrassment etc.?
I know that anti-depressant medication and/or psychotherapy are always an option but I have never felt I needed them because I have other ways of dealing with these emotions that involve spirituality. So I was wondering about the atheist equivalent or ways that atheists deal with life, other than by seeking professional help.
Here is an example: You are forced to work with someone who you find unreasonable, inconsiderate and stupid. How do you keep yourself from being consumed by anger?
