Anger can be a useful emotion that triggers a physical reaction in the body. This reaction is called 'fight or flight' and it normally happens when we are stressed or threatened. Adrenaline is pumped around the body, making you feel tense and ready to 'fight' the threat, or flee. The problem here is that fighting or running away isn't usually an appropriate option. This can make it difficult for us to express anger, and this is where some people develop a problem. When you aren't able to express your anger, you may bottle it up. This can cause angry outbursts at inappropriate times. It may also make you feel more angry in general, leading you to react more aggressively in other situations.  Everyone's experience will differ, but the following types of anger issues are recognised as potentially damaging:


  • Chronic anger - Ongoing, prolonged anger can affect the immune system and result in other mental health issues.
  • Passive anger - When people express their anger in a passive way it often affects relationships.
  • Overwhelmed anger - Caused when an individual feels there is simply too much to cope with.
  • Self-inflicted anger - When anger is directed toward yourself due to guilt, it can be mentally damaging.
  • Judgmental anger - Directed towards others, the feeling of anger usually comes with resentment.
  • Volatile anger - Leading to violent outbursts, this form of anger can be troubling for loved ones.

Why am I so angry?


Everyone is different and will have their own anger triggers. It could be that you feel you are being treated unfairly, or you may simply be frustrated. For many people a sense of powerlessness can lead to frustration and anger. To understand why you are angry, it can be helpful to look at your past experiences. Some people's backgrounds and upbringing can influence how they cope with anger. It may be that your parents were overly angry and violent when you were younger, so you were brought up to believe this behaviour is normal. Alternatively you may have grown up seeing anger as a scary emotion. This can make you feel frightened or unable to express it. Whatever the circumstance may be, understanding the root of your anger is an important step in anger management.
