Anger is an instinctual emotion we feel when we come up against the futilities we face in life. Futilities refer to the things in life that happen which we cannot change (such as loss of a relationship or moving). Due to this instinctual nature, it makes sense that anger can vary with its intensity depending on the life situation. Anger can also be an indicator that something in our life needs our attention.
When the emotion anger enters our life and we are able to manage it, the feeling will pass. We can internalize anger or externalize it. The extremes of both of these situations can have negative consequences with our relationships, work, state of mind and physical health. By understanding our anger from the inside out, we are able to find healthy ways to manage it.
