Why We Get Angry

 Anger can be a perfectly normal response to the everyday stresses of life. And as we all know, life can get pretty stressful.  Anger can manifest itself in many ways and as a response to many different types of situations.

This completely natural response often ranges from slight irritation all the way up to explosive rage depending on the situation at hand. Like all emotional responses, anger often holds a lot of validity.

But as children, we learn to view these feelings as negative. We’re told that it’s not good to feel upset and that we need to put on a ‘happy face’ and move past it. And because no one likes feeling angry or upset it’s easy to adopt this mindset that anger is a bad thing.

Anger is not a ‘bad’ thing to feel, and when we believe that it is it can lead to believing that we shouldn’t express these feelings. You might have grown up trying to pretend that you weren’t angry or have felt the need to hide these feelings of anger.

This can lead to a buildup of frustration within you which in turn often causes explosive fits of rage. When we hold onto anger until it becomes expressed this way it can be damaging and sometimes even violent.

When expressed in a healthy way, anger can be a constructive way to let others know that something has negatively impacted you. However, when everyday anger is turning into a full-blown rage this can be a big problem.

Identifying Anger As A Problem

As mentioned above, when anger is not expressed in an appropriate way it can turn into a big issue. Bottling up this emotion can lead to various forms of unhealthy anger issues.

If you find yourself experiencing chronic anger or prolonged periods of ongoing angry feelings this can be an indication that your anger is getting a bit out of control. If your anger is manifesting itself as violence this a very clear sign of it being an issue.

Other forms of unhealthy anger include passive anger and anger that leads to self-harm. These extreme variations of our normal emotional response have damaging effects on many areas in our life.

If the anger you are expressing is having a negative impact on your relationships and the overall state of well-being it’s time to reach out for help.

Effects Of Anger

Unmanaged anger is not only damaging to those around you but can also have a negative impact on your physical and mental health.

Physical effects of anger include high blood pressure, lowered immune system, and stomach issues. And prolonged effects of unmanaged anger can even include stroke, heart disease, and cancer.

When you reach an angry state your body goes into a routine response called ‘fight or flight’. This rush of adrenaline through your body causes you to tense up and emotionally prepare to deal with the situation.

Being in this state often also has a bad effect on your emotional state. In the long run, an unhandled anger problem can lead to depression and anxiety and overall states of mental stress.
