Key Facts & Information
ANGER: What is it? What does it make us feel?
- Anger is an emotion that arises from antagonism towards a certain person, thing, or situation that you believe/feel has done something wrong towards you.
- Anger is caused by triggers specific to each person. These triggers often have a common denominator of causing a person to feel attacked, disadvantaged, or at a loss.
- Anger can make us feel aggravated and overwhelmed. It can cause us to act without thinking beforehand.
- When we are angry, our faces can feel warm, our ears can feel warm, our hands may feel the need to clench, our tummies can get a little queasy, and we may feel the need to express our anger in a physical manner.
ANGER: Coping skills and proper expression
- Different people express anger in different ways. Some people express their anger through silence and gestures that show some hostility
- Although it is healthy to express your anger, there are healthy and unhealthy ways of doing so.
- Unhealthy expression of anger includes yelling at the people around you, blaming other people for the anger you feel, performing responsibilities half-heartedly, procrastinating responsibilities, saying degrading things to other people, acting angrily and denying you are feeling angry, and keeping your anger in, hindering you from getting past your anger. All these ways of expressing your anger are counterproductive and will most likely lead to you getting angrier.
- Healthy expression of anger includes processing your anger, meditating, admitting you are angry and expressing the reasons why calmly and rationally, redirecting your energy to your hobbies, addressing causes of anger, writing about your anger, taking accountability for feelings, not seeking to blame other people, and learning and moving past your anger. All these allow you to grow from your experience, It also allows you to identify what triggered your anger and ways to avoid it or, at least, move past it.
- Healthy anger is when a person feels angry without the feeling of vindictiveness. Healthy anger is when we have a reasonable cause for our anger and when we have the desire to process our anger. Anger is healthy when we take time to process what we are feeling. If we feel a sense of satisfaction, acceptance, growth, and relief when we express our anger, it can be an indication that our anger is healthy.
- Anger is unhealthy when it causes us to feel vengeance or the need to blame and take it out on others. Anger is unhealthy when we build upon it and dwell on it. When we become aggressive and irrational, our anger is unhealthy.
- Anger is an emotion that cannot be avoided. It is something we must allow ourselves to feel in order to get past it. However, there are boundaries and healthy manners in which we can express and feel our anger. We must not let our anger take control of us.
