Definition of an angry person

Anger is one of the more intense emotions that makes us human. It’s a combination of displeasure, frustration, or resentment. You can be angry at a person, an inanimate object, or a situation.

Different people express this feeling in various ways like verbal outbursts, physical aggression, or passive-aggressive behaviour. Anger can also manifest physically: increased heart rate, sweating, and muscle tension.

In short, this feeling can be unhealthy and destructive if not managed appropriately. And so it’s important to address it in a healthy way to prevent it from negatively affecting you and your relationships.

How to deal with feeling angry

Dealing with intense emotions is challenging, especially anger because it’s usually explosive. Here are some strategies that can help you deal with anger appropriately.

  1. Take a break: It’s easier said than done because it’s possibly the hardest thing to do when angry. However, try your best to compose yourself and take a few minutes to step away from the situation and try to calm down. Take deep breaths, count to ten, or go for a walk.
  2. Identify the source of your anger: Step back and try to identify what caused this anger. Where is this emotion coming from? Is it because of a specific person, situation, or event? Just like in any problem-solving effort, knowing the root of your anger helps you address it more effectively.
  3. Use “I” statements: Self-assessment and communication are also important in managing your anger. When addressing your anger, using “I” statements instead of immediately pointing fingers would be helpful. It’s better to say, “I feel frustrated when…” instead of, “You always do this…”
  4. Practice relaxation techniques: Regulating how your body reacts to anger also helps– practice relaxation techniques. You can start with the basics, like taking deep breaths and simple meditation then you can move to more complex activities like yoga. Actively doing these measures can help reduce stress and let you manage anger more constructively.
  5. Seek support: Feelings require communication so talk to a trusted friend or family member about it instead of bottling it all up. Loved ones care about each other and are always willing to offer support and help you deal with anger better.

Consider therapy: On a more serious note, if you feel like your anger is constantly interrupting your daily life and relationships, consider seeking professional help. They might not know everything about you, but as professionals, they can help you develop healthy coping strategies. Professionals may also be able to address underlying issues or locate obscured causes of your anger.
