Anger is a basic defensive emotion that is designed to protect us from harm or from loss of something we care about. Anger makes us react quickly by communicating action signals to the body to prepare us to neutralize or defeat the perceived danger. The main problem of anger is its impassivity. While it serves to deal with the immediate threat, many times it makes us to act against our long-term best interests.

Conquering anger problems requires multi-dimensional approach. Not only individuals must manage their anger feelings and its physiological arousal, it also depends on the choices individuals make. The decision is based on one key question – what kind of person you want to be. Do you want to be an angry, resentful person, or you want to be your best self who is guided by positive core values and lives in a happy.

Not all those who have experienced anger are seeking to know how to overcome it. Many don’t even rationalize their anger, and would go any length to justify it, both to themselves and to others, as if the welfare of the world depended on their anger. Yet, it is important to understand that it is not the anger itself but the expression of anger that can be dangerous and problematic.

The following are symptoms that indicate signs of anger problems:

  • Accumulating of stress and Blowing-up
