What is anger?
Anger is a normal emotion with a wide range of intensity, from mild irritation and frustration to rage. It is a reaction to a perceived threat to us, our loved ones, our property, or some part of our identity. Anger is a warning bell that tells us that something is wrong. Mismanaged anger, on the other hand, is counter-productive and can be unhealthy. When anger is too intense, out of control, misdirected and overly aggressive, it leads us to make poor decisions, causing problems with relationships, work-life and even our health.
Signs of an anger problem may include:
- Explosive outbursts and breaking things.
- Getting involved in physical violence.
- Arguing with people around you.
- Losing your temper quickly (for example, road rage).
- A constant desire to lash out physically or verbally.
We all cope with anger in our own way, just as we do when feeling sad or stressed.
There are many reasons why you may not be able to control anger. The way you interpret and react to certain situations can depend on many life factors, including past experiences, your childhood and current circumstance.
You will have your own, personal triggers for what makes you angry.
