Anger, like all feelings and emotions, is a normal part of the human experience. As such, it is not the feeling of anger but the anger style in which we express it that often makes things difficult. This is never more true that when the feeling of anger is expressed in a way that is abusive.
If you feel that anger is a problem for you please know that you are not alone. Anger can come from past hurts, abuses and unresolved feelings. Anger can also be a symptom of a condition such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or another mental health or physical concern.
Below we have provided links to some helpful resources for understanding anger better and, perhaps more importantly, learning to manage it.
