We all feel angry from time to time, it’s a normal emotion and there’s usually a good reason to feel angry.  Some people have uncontrollable anger, and it can be harmful. However, they can learn to manage it. 

Anger can become an issue if it is expressed through destructive or unhelpful behaviour. This behaviour can be directed towards other people or yourself. Anger can even make someone more prone to suffering from mental health concerns such as anxiety or depression. Alternatively, it can make existing mental health concerns worse.

Why Do You Feel Angry?

You might feel angry because you feel frustrated or powerless. You might have fallen out with a friend or have problems at school or home. Some people feel angry because they feel misunderstood, confused, or stressed. You could also be feeling angry because something happened to you in the past, such as abuse or neglect.

Understanding what triggers your anger can help you to begin to find the cause. It can also help you find a way to make things better for you.
