Anger is a normal human emotion. It is part of the 'fight or flight' survival mechanism which evolved to help us when faced with threat or attack. The pulse races, adrenalin surges, breathing gets faster and shallow, blood surges to the muscles of the legs and arms, and the body gets flooded with stress hormones.
But it is problematic when anger becomes excessive and manifests in uncontrollable outbursts. It can ruin lives as work and relationships suffer. Excessive anger can sometimes have an obvious trigger, but also can seem to occur out of the blue. It always results from stress or an underlying issue that needs to be addressed with therapy.
There are various stressful circumstances such as feeling overtired, ill or hungry or undergoing hormonal changes, that can lead us to have a lower tolerance for irritations that can then accumulate into angry feelings and outbursts. For example, we may get frustrated or irritated with the boss, but have to keep those feelings to ourselves, which leaves them circulating with no obvious way of being discharged. We may become more and more wound up by little annoyances that build up over the day until we reach a point when we snap over something seemingly trifling.
Sometimes people have a tendency towards anger because of chronic low self-esteem which may stem from negative circumstances during childhood. As adults, they may never feel good or worthy enough and tend to lash out if they perceive themselves as slighted in any way.
More often than is realised, anger is triggered by an underlying suppressed emotion relating to a perhaps forgotten experience.
