What is Anger?
Anger can be a spectrum of emotions from mildly irritated, to moderately annoyed, to intense rage. It is a basic emotion that comes with biological and physiological changes such as increased blood pressure and heart rate. Your body also releases hormones such as adrenaline.
What Causes Anger?
Many things can cause anger. Anger can be triggered internally or externally. For example, if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or even substance use, you may experience biological changes that make you feel more irritable. However, anger can also be triggered by your environment or something that happens to you. Sometimes, it is not necessarily the event that triggers the anger, but your thoughts about the event that contribute to the anger and ultimately your actions.
How Do I Know If I Have an Anger Problem?
Anger is normal. Anger is healthy. Everyone experiences it. What is problematic is when the emotion of anger is so strong that you lose control of your emotions and harm others or are destructive in some way. Do you ever feel that you have lost control over your emotions or do others feel frightened by your behavior? Problems with anger can lead to problems at home, school, work, or in the community. Some people have lost relationships, jobs, and even their freedom because of lack of control over this emotion. It can impact your quality of life.
