Understanding the underlying patterns beneath the anger is the first step. We become angry and frustrated when we think we are being disrespected, when we are afraid, feel attacked, or are under pressure. These feelings can cause certain some of us to react in inappropriate and destructive ways. Investigating the underlying feelings that are at the root of these disruptive responses is the starting point for effectively managing anger and ultimately changing our lives.
