There are many reasons why people have trouble managing their anger and angry behaviors. The reasons are different for everybody and may be a combination of different factors. Perhaps you’ve been taught that it’s “not nice” or “inappropriate” to express anger. Maybe you’ve witnessed extreme anger and/or violence at home, in your neighborhood or at school, distorting how you view or experience anger. It could also be hard for you to control your anger because you haven’t yet learned how to deal with the emotions you feel inside. Whatever the reason, the next step is to work on ways of understanding what triggers your anger and how to manage your behavior even when the angry feeling is justified.
