What is anger?

Different people experience anger in different ways. Anger comes from being frustrated, hurt, or scared. If we cannot sense these emotions, it may mean there are issues with our minds. Sometimes the feeling of anger does not come when you want it.

People react differently to situations that are not good or bad. Anger can be very physical, so we need to know how our bodies react in certain situations. For example, if we feel something inside us when someone says something rude, it may indicate how we apprehend the situation.
3. To see: or not to see:
We should try and listen to our body’s reactions in certain situations. For example, if you are angry at someone and feel the urge to get even, stop yourself from doing something you’ll regret. You do not want to cause more damage or destroy property.

We should control our emotions in certain situations so we do not say things that can hurt others. We should speak our mind when we are angry, but not in a way that will cause more harm.
