The Basic Facts About Anger

By Broyde McDonald

Every person on the face of the earth is often and repeatedly affected by anger, a basic human emotion.

Everybody gets mad, that is what is meant by anger is a basic human emotion. Life is filled with conflict, and this is the reason for it. It seems like in a lot of cases that for one person to win another one has to lose.

Like the other emotions, anger is also contagious and spreads rapidly but unexplained from person to person. Anger is not the only emotion that acts this way, as happiness and sadness operate in a similar way.

Anger has varying levels of intensity. A person can be a little angry, or they can be totally outraged. The level of anger's intensity is also different from person to person. As an example, let's say that your neighbor pinches you, your brother and your sister. Even though the same pinch was given to everybody, all three of you are likely to respond with different levels of anger.

I am saying that for some people, anger is felt more strongly than for other people.

However even though anger always calls for a response, the response is always under the control of the person who is angry. When you get mad, it is your choice about whether you forgive and forget, or you do not forgive and you do things to destroy the source of your anger.

So your response to anger is determined by you and the way you think about things.

There is another important consideration that you need to think about when it comes to anger. It comes in the form of a question. You need to ask yourself if your anger is justified, or if you are just being immature about what you are angry about.

This question is not one that you can always answer alone. A curious thing about people is that we are hardly able to see our problems and being able to tell when we are wrong. And on top of that you can be perfectly just in your anger, and a smooth talking person can get you to think that you are not.

So getting help with managing your anger will help you to understand what setting and defending your boundaries are all about. Once you can do this, you will know if your anger is good or bad. - 31891
