Anger is a normal emotion in life. The details of why people get angry vary from person to person – some people might be angry due to petty reasons, some due to pressing issues. Anger is often felt when someone gets frustrated. Yes, this reaction is typical but not being able to manage it can sometimes lead to bigger problems.

Being angry due to reasonable circumstances is acceptable, not everything will go according to plans. But if this anger is affecting the person feeling it and the people around, then it may become a serious matter, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Anger can make someone counter-productive and can push them to do and say things which they’ll eventually regret. It’s difficult to tell someone to “calm down” when they’re on the peak of their emotions. Additionally, anger is difficult to change because:
- Anger can be productive to some people, serving as stimuli for them to get what they want.
- Anger gives the drive of doing something a calm person will never do.
- Anger can be energizing, satisfying and self-reinforcing to some.
No studies claim that being angry is immoral – this is an emotion accepted by people and the society. The trouble begins when someone who’s angry can no longer control their emotions and use this to inflict pain to other. Being angry can also cause someone to be unproductive and anti-social. Although releasing anger once in a while is a good avenue to de-stress, having too much of it can also become dangerous – that’s when a People Psychology Psychologist in Brighton can help you.
