Anger is a basic human emotion that is experienced by all people.
Most people view anger as a negative emotion, but it is just one of a wide array of normal human feelings.
“When anger rises, think of the consequences.” – Confucius
The experience of anger varies widely; how often anger occurs, how intensely it is felt, and how long it lasts are different for each person.
At its worst, anger can be incredibly frustrating and vexing, and it can become a tremendous obstacle to our success.
At its best, however, anger is an emotion that can fuel us to great success–and ultimately, even happiness–so long as we control the anger we feel, and don’t let it control us.
From biological, psychological and survival aspects, anger is an influential motivator in everyday life.
Anger can transform our lives when it is viewed as a friend and teacher that’s trying to guide us on the road to recovery.
