Anger and frustration are natural emotions. Anger is not in itself right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy, appropriate or inappropriate.

It is the expression of anger that makes it right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy, appropriate or inappropriate. Unhealthy anger is when anger is directed toward another for the purpose of being hurtful and to do harm. Wrong and inappropriate anger is when anger is violent and is used to punish, intimidate, control, and manipulate.

Anger that is repressed and aggressive is unhealthy anger. It is unhealthy to stuff, ignore, and/or pretend the anger does not exist.

  • Resentment is unexpressed anger.
  • Passive-aggressive is anger meant to inflict pain.
  • Rage is abusive anger filled with feelings of fear, sadness, shame, inadequacy, guilt, and/or loss.
  • Unresolved anger can lead to serious physical and mental health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, depression, and anxiety.
  • Suppressed anger can lead to depression, violence, or obsession. Old, suppressed anger can emerge at any time in response to a present situation. The response may be inappropriate, reactive, and might have nothing to do with the present situation.

When we experience anger it is about our issue(s) that we do not want to look at within ourselves. It is our buttons that are getting pushed thus, it is our issues that we need to examine and heal. The other person and/or event is our opportunity to see what still needs to be processed and worked on within ourselves.

Anger is about the past; fear is about the future. Fear is anger that we failed at something in the past and believe we will fail again in the future. All fears might actually be anger; anger that we don’t have the tools to heal the past to be successful in the future.

Anger, then, might possibly be the fear of moving forward. We will cling to the past and the issues of the past rather than look at the real issue of not having the tools and skills we need to be successful now and in the future. We use anger as a diversion from the real issue.

Some Definitions:

  • Anxiety is a combination of four things: unidentified anger, hurt, fear, and self-pity. We expect error, rejection, humiliation, and actually start to anticipate it. It is misplaced trust.
  • Worry is anticipated anger.
  • Guilt might be anger we don’t feel we have a right to have.
  • Depression might be anger we think we would get in trouble for having, thus we depress the anger.

There is something we can do to deal our anger issues. It is called EFT Tapping, Emotional Freedom Technique.
