Getting angry is something everyone has experienced. We all have moments where anger pushes us to act in a way we may later wish we hadn’t. These moments are generally few and far between, but when they become commonplace there is a problem.
Anger is often a defensive mechanism against a perceived emotional or physical attack. Primary anger is felt in a trying situation and once released is moved past. It’s expression is appropriate and not destructive.
Secondary anger is self destructive because it is all consuming and ongoing. It can result in the physical or emotional harm of others and ourselves.
Fleeting responses of anger to difficult situations are normal. You might slam a door after a fight with your partner, or raise your voice at your child. This anger is released without harming others and it can be let go after its expression.
But when anger takes over you can act dangerously and aggressively. It may feel hard to let go of anger, or to not be enraged by small events. But it is possible to get back in control of your emotions.
