Understanding Anger

Do you often find yourself in a situation where you feel unusually angry? If so, you are not alone! We all get angry from time to time.

Regardless of the fact that anger is usually perceived as negative, in all truth anger is just another feeling. Our feelings are always neutral unless acted upon with force and no consideration for the well-being of the person who experiences an emotion or well-being of others. Holding in or bottling up our emotions is as bad as expressing them in uncontrolled or disrespectful way.

Anger could be a useful feeling. It could motivate us if - let's say we are moved by injustice and as a result pursue noble goal of rectifying such injustice. Anger in relationship or social situation gives us a warning that something needs fixing or rectifying, thus giving us a chance for improving both.
