|Everyone has likely experienced anger at some time throughout their life. Some people become angry more often than others, and have regular, intense outbursts. Others tend to bottle their feelings, and then explode or erupt without warning - like a volcano.
Anger is a basic human emotion and a natural reaction to situations beyond our control. There are a number of things that can trigger or contribute to anger such as the actions of another person (treating an animal unfairly), an event (favorite football team is beaten), stress (losing the new account at work), expectations not being met, feelings of hurt, disrespect, humiliation, embarrassment, jealousy and sadness.
Anger is healthy and depending on how it is managed and expressed, anger can be positive or negative. Anger has positive consequences when angry feelings help you address a problem or issue with yourself or another person and rectify the situation.
