What is Anger?
Anger is a normal human emotion that we all feel from time to time. For some, however, feelings of anger seem to be more easily triggered by things that other may be able to feel okay about. There are many factors that contribute to how angry we might feel about something – but often it’s the case that someone or something has transgressed our moral code, and may be rooted in our earlier childhood experiences.
Feeling angry can affect how we think and behave, which in turn can have negative impacts on lives, such as romantic and social relationships, work, as well as our overall mood, and can lead to feelings of shame, guilt and depression.
