about_therapy
What is anger? Why do we experience anger?

Anger is a normal response to situations that we perceive as unjust, unfair, or otherwise do not meet our expectations. Anger can show up whether we face difficulties in our work lives, challenges at home, or struggles in our everyday lives. Anger can also be a response to situations that have happened in the past that have not been emotionally resolved.

Anger tells us that something is wrong and that change is needed - in this sense, it is an adaptive emotion. Yet, in expressing our desire for change or dissatisfaction with current circumstances, adaptive anger can easily turn into problem anger. Problem anger can be recognized when we notice ourselves feeling increasingly irritable and on edge or reacting angrily to others on an ongoing basis.

Can you notice the signs of problem anger?
  • Unexpected or uncontrolled outbursts

  • Urge to get revenge

  • Recurrent and persistent angry thought patterns

  • Increased dissatisfaction and frustration in everyday life

  • Inability to let go of past events

  • Increased conflict with the people surrounding you

  • Consistent feelings of anger

  • Viewing everything as hostile/unfair

  • Overly defensive
