WHY ANGER IS NECESSARY FOR YOUR NORMAL LIVING
The human being is programmed with an instinct for danger that makes us willing to “fight or flight”. The threat inspires feelings and behaviors in an often powerfully aggressive manner, making it possible for us to be able to fight and defend ourselves when we are being attacked. A certain amount of anger is thus essential to our survival. When you are angry, your body releases stress hormones, like adrenaline, that make your pulse and heart rate go up, your body temperature to increase and for you to breathe faster. Your body is prepared to fight.

You feel irritated You have feelings of resentment You feel a desire or need to act out verbally and your voice gets louder You feel a desire or need to act out physically (throwing things or even hurting yourself or others) You say and do things that you do not mean You feel a desire to escape from the situation You feel a need to use substances to make you calm down You behave anxiously (like fidgeting with your hands) You behave rudely/sarcastically/abusively You grind your teeth You clench your jaw You have stomach problems You get a faster heart rate and more rapid breathing You sweat more than usual You get hot flashes Your body is trembling You feel dizzy
If your anger becomes excessive or uncontrollable, it can be destructive and may lead to problems at work, in your relationships and in your overall life. When having anger problems, it is common to often regret your actions afterwards, since it hurts your loved ones. But the impulse to react is too strong at the time. When anger gets out of control, the consequences can be very serious and there are no limits to what it will lead to for yourself and others.

Uncontrolled or unresolved anger can lead to many problems, including:
- Hurting yourself or others
- Depression and low self-esteem
- Eating disorders.
