Anger, also known as wrath or rage, is an intense emotional state involving a strong uncomfortable and non-cooperative response to a perceived provocation, hurt or threat.


Anger can have many physical and mental consequences. The external expression of anger can be found in facial expressions, body language, physiological responses, and at times public acts of aggression.

Anger : No one is exempt from this emotion. Weโ€™ve either been on the receiving end of it or the initiator of it.


The infamous movie line โ€œyou wouldnโ€™t like me when Iโ€™m angryโ€ has been hurled across the globe by many. Some find humor in this statement however for others it's their reality.


๐“•๐“ป๐“ธ๐“ถ ๐“ฆ๐“ฒ๐“ด๐“ฒ๐“น๐“ฎ๐“ญ๐“ฒ๐“ช

Modern psychologists view anger as a normal, natural, and mature emotion experienced by virtually all humans at times, and as something that has functional value for survival. Uncontrolled anger can negatively affect personal or social well-being and negatively impact those around them.

Weโ€™ve seen the aftermath of uncontrolled anger on news outlets and social media platforms. It appears as if we canโ€™t get away from these manifestations which is disheartening to say at the least. To counteract the destructive nature associated with anger, I wholeheartedly believe in accessing the power of God through prayer.


It has to begin somewhere - but it can not end there.

While many philosophers and writers have warned against the spontaneous and uncontrolled fits of anger, there has been disagreement over the intrinsic value of anger.


The issue of dealing with anger has been written about since the times of the earliest philosophers, but modern psychologists, in contrast to earlier writers, have also pointed out the possible harmful effects of suppressing anger.


๐“œ๐“ฎ๐“ญ๐“ฒ๐“ฝ๐“ช๐“ฝ๐“ฒ๐“ธ๐“ท ๐“œ๐“ธ๐“ถ๐“ฎ๐“ท๐“ฝ

In response to the last sentence in the Wikipedia wrote up above, I do believe in the release of a passion infused emotion for a worthy cause. Unfair treatment, mistreatment and poor judgment can definitely incite emotions that demand a response. Wisdom is needed from trusted sources in how to express your emotions in a non-threatening manner.


I do believe in protecting yourself and your family against acts of violence. Having access to professionals who can litigate on your behalf is extremely important if you're ever put in this predicament.


I do believe that unprovoked, unwarranted outbursts of anger in places and spaces that are suppose to be places of refuge is not healthy and damaging to oneโ€™s mental well being. Especially the initiators. Itโ€™s a direct reflection on their inability to control their emotions. Prayer is in order and most importantly counseling and ongoing therapy.


Donโ€™t scratch the surface when a Jack hammer is needed to break up destructive behavior patterns. Remember roots run deep and are strong based upon the length of time theyโ€™ve been allowed to grow.
