Anger is a natural human emotion that everyone experiences at some point in his or her lives. It can range from mild annoyance to intense rage.
Anger becomes a concern when such anger periods develop unpredictably, happen very frequently, is expressed in harmful ways and becomes out of control.
Uncontrolled anger may start to negatively impact a person’s quality of life (and those around them) if not appropriately managed.
Common symptoms of poor anger management include:
- One feels angry a lot of the time
- Anger is disproportionate to the event that triggered it
- Involves verbal, physical or emotional abuse of others and yourself
- Has led to problems at work or in personal relationships
- Alcohol or illicit drugs may be being used to manage the anger
