What's Behind You Anger

Updated: May 10, 2019

Anger is not a very complex emotion. It can cover up other feelings, like a mask. Common causes of this emotion are: Anxiety, Depression, Hurt, Resentment, and lack of sleep. Just to name a few. The actual definition of anger goes as follows “A strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. I don’t know about you, but I personally always feel annoyed during my ‘anger spouts’. Also it can be used by those who have trouble expressing emotions, other than anger. Or those who view opinions as a personal challenge.

Now, let’s try talking about the “Why”. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, many things can make us angry. It could be an event, such as bad traffic or something as bad as a trauma or loss. There are other reason.

Such as:

Problems with yourself

Problems with others

Feeling powerless or hopeless

Feeling violated, threatened or attacked

Being interrupted in any way. (this is one my biggest pet peeves)

Being disrespected

Being treated unfairly

Now we can finally get to the point of “What can I do?”.

Later on I’ll go into more and more details about, how to overcome anger. Until then, here’s a small list to helps you:

-Exercise. Emotions are energy. Take your feelings and turn them into something more positive.

-Watch/listen to something funny.

-Shift your focus onto something else.

-Get up and do something


-Journal (trust me, it helps)
