Understanding Anger Part 2

Most of us struggle with anger. When we are angry, we often cause hurt, tension and conflict. We end up regretting what we said or did, and the people we hurt the most are our near and dear ones. In such cases our anger is unregulated and reactive. This happens because we don’t understand the true nature and purpose of anger, and also because we do not have the means to master this volatile emotion, so it becomes destructive. Once we understand our patterns better, it can become a good friend.

In this series of post we will try to uncover some interpretations of events that prompt feelings of anger :

  • Believing that you have penetrated unfairly
  • Blaming
  • Believing that important goals are being blocked or stopped
  • Believing that things “should” be different than they are
  • Rigidly thinking, “I’m right.”
  • Judging that the situation is illegitimate or wrong.
  • Ruminating about the event that set off the anger in the first place

Let’s now look at some biological changes and experiencing of anger :

  • Muscles tightening
  • Teeth calming together
  • Hands clenching
  • Feeling your face flush or get hot
  • Feeling like you are going to explode
  • Being unable to stop tears
  • Wanting to hit someone, bang the wall, throw something, blow up.
  • Wanting to hurt someone

Tomorrow we will look at some expression and after effects of anger.

      Glad you liked the post. The verbal expressions include yelling, arguing, cursing, and sarcasm. However, anger can also be expressed physically by raising a clenched fist, throwing a book on the floor, breaking a pencil or hitting a wall. Sometimes, anger is not expressed externally but remains as internal rumination.

      Anger management helps you recognize frustrations early and resolve them in a way that allows you to express your needs β€” and keeps you calm and in control. Avoiding situations because of anxiety or depression about anger outbursts.

      It’s a work in progress. We all are. We should find other ways like exercising or journalling to constructively release out anger

  4. Reading this, it dawned on me that I don’t recall one instance of being really, seriously angry since I lost my job. So, one positive from the virus.

      Anger is often associated with frustration. Anger may arise when things don’t happen the way we want or people don’t act the way we would like. It’s usually a reaction to a ‘trigger’ event or emotion, which can include feeling embarrassed, guilt or shame, jealousy, stress and a host of other reasons.
