Anger

Anger is just a human feeling. It is how we manage our anger that determines its consequences. We tend to become angry when faced with a threat to ourselves or those we love. This anger directs our attention and motivates action. Whether that action makes us more or less safe depends upon our training in managing our anger with words and behaviors appropriate to the threat or situation triggering the anger.
