It is interesting to know that anger as an emotion is felt due to several underlying forces or reasons. Some of the underlying forces behind anger are:

  • Anger is often felt when we think of something we desired but did not get at the childhood stage.
  • when we are exhausted, stressed out and our body resources are down the tendency to have the emotion of anger is high.
  • When we are angry, we lack the power of logical reasoning. In other words, we are rarely ever angry for the reasons we think.
  • We often become angry towards an individual who possesses the trait which we cannot tolerate even within ourselves.
  • Astonishingly, anger felt today may be a result of old disappointments, traumas, and triggers.
  • Past events may act as a trigger for generating the emotion of anger. For example, at times we get angry because we were hurt as a child.
  • We get angry when a current event brings up an old unresolved situation from the past.
