For some people anger can become out of control and cause problems in relationships. Work and even the law. It can also cause health problems such as high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and heart disease.
It is important to deal with anger in a healthy way that doesn’t harm you or anyone else.
Anger is different for everyone. Things that make some people angry will not bother others. Some people show anger through verbally whilst others react violently and last out either by hitting someone, pushing them or breaking things. Other people show anger in a passive way by ignoring people or sulking. You also could be hiding your anger or turning it against themselves unable to let it out. People who tend to turn to anger inwards may harm themselves as a way of coping with intense feelings they have.
