Many people have felt or feel angry at some point and time in life. Having a moment of anger is part of being human, it’s natural. Anger becomes a problem when it starts to take control of your life. When anger starts affecting your relationships, employment and life overall there’s an issue.
Anger can come from both external and internal factors. There can be other deeper emotions hiding under the anger. Some emotions that are sometimes disguised as anger are fear, hurt, humiliation, rejection, and disappointment. Anger varies from mildly irritated to frustration and rage.
