Anger - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly & Effects

Anger, according to Merriam Webster Dictionary is a strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism. To Wikipedia, it is an intense emotional response. It is an emotion that involves a strong uncomfortable and emotional response to a perceived provocation, hurt or threat. To us, it is just a simple meaning of strong emotion towards a person or uncontrollable situation. But nevertheless, we feel this kind of emotion often which is normal. But, do be careful. Anger is not just normal anger. 
In this post, I will tackle the different kinds of anger. 

Anger - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. . .

The Good . . .

Anger helps us express what's really inside us. It is somehow a way to show or tell someone of your feelings towards them. Anger is also a way of motivation that something needs to change. What's good about anger is that we can easily express our feelings. Do you remember that time when you have a hard time telling to a person or persons exactly how you feel that it builds up inside you & when you can't control it, it suddenly bursts open & that's when that person (s) realized how wrong he/she towards you?

The Bad . . .

Anger, when letting yourself control it, can stop or prevent your mind in thinking reason like, how can you move on or forgive yourself or someone if you are angry at yourself/someone? Or how can you think straight when you let anger control you? It also can be used by manipulation strategy. Like, someone would use your anger for his/her purpose to get what he/she wants. If you also use anger, you would end up hurting not only physically but emotionally to someone or to your loved one(s).

The Ugly . . .

Anger, when lost in control or you let yourself be controlled by anger is also not good. It leads to more serious situation. Violence, hatred & feeling of revenge came from anger. It can hurt the people around whether they are your loved ones or friends - either emotionally or physically that later on you felt remorse. 

Some Effects . . .

This also leads to illness because it releases hormones like adrenaline and cortisol from our bodies. Have you experienced headache or backache? Or sometimes high blood pressure after getting angry or feeling of tiredness or stress or simply feeling all of your energies been drained down? These are some health problems affected by ANGER.
Psychologically, it dramatically changes one's behavior like drinking problems or confidence or self-esteem, depression or worse, substance abuse or self-injury because when angry it reduces your threshold of pain.
So, when you feel anger better calm yourself down before you let it control you.
