Anger is one of many emotions linked to feeling out of control, and things can feel beyond your means or understanding.
Everyone feels angry in their life, but what is important to differentiate is the level you are experiencing.
Anger can occur in several ways:
- A strong sense of annoyance, jealousy or frustration
- Intentionally wanting others to feel bad
- Or it being your default emotion and can usually feel out of your control
Any level of anger can be addressed and reworked. If it is impacting your life and others around you, then you are not fully in control of your emotions. You can then find yourself succumbing to these emotions on a regular basis.

What causes anger?
Anger is an emotion brought on by something you are yet to fully address in your life. Before you react angrily towards someone or something, there will be a build-up of other emotions such as:
These emotions provide early signs that something in your life needs addressing in order to quell that difficult emotion.
If this goes without being addressed, these feelings can develop into a more defensive emotion. This is where anger becomes a barrier between what you have been yet to deal with and your own felt safety.
By evoking fear in others, you are using anger as a defense mechanism away from addressing your own emotions
How therapy can help with anger.
If anger continues to not be addressed, it becomes a natural reaction to anything that would have usually caused you to just feel stressed, anxious, or tense.
As it continues to build it can become more uncontrollable. This is where it can lead to more severe issues such as contributing to physical and mental abuse in others.
Through talking counselling, you are starting a journey of recovery. By finding the roots of how you react, you are delving into what you want from your life and what will give you the happiness you deserve.
