 Anger is an acid 
that can do more harm
to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything
on which it is poured.
Mark Twain

ANGER IS AN EMOTION COMMON TO ALL TIMES AND CULTURES.
Anger is everywhere.  In every culture and time.  Everyone gets angry sometimes. But for some, anger is a dominant emotion.  It is negative, explosive, repetitive and is leading to other negative behaviors like depression, sadness and pain.

BY ITSELF ANGER IS NEITHER GOOD OR EVIL.
It is how we express our anger that makes it good or evil. For example:

  • Getting angry about opioid deaths and reporting a doctor who illegally prescribes opioids is a good expression of anger.
  • Getting angry about opioid deaths and shooting a doctor who illegally prescribes opioids is an evil expression of anger.
  • Same anger. Different expressions. Good or Evil.

ANGER SHOWS IN MANY WAYS
Anger can be expressed in a hundred ways.  Here are common ways we express forms of anger:

Rage, Gossip, Revenge, Sarcasm, Impatience, Irritation, Vengeance, Judging others, Avoidance, Revenge, Hold a grudge, Frustration, Sulking, Sabotage, Blaming, Resentful, Bullying, Subversion, Bitterness, Resentment, Aggravation, Jealousy, Contempt, Annoyance, Violence, Outrage, Criticism, Seething, Antagonism, Passive/Aggressive, Hatred, Hostility, Disgust, Fury, Betrayal, Yelling, Hitting, Withdrawing, Silence, Threatening, Combative, Abuse, Grouchiness,

ANGER HAS A PERSONAL COST
Anger almost always has a negative impact on ourselves and others though we don't see it until later.  We try to avoid, manage, hide, suppress, and ignore it.  But anger doesn't quit.  It still lives inside us and never leads to good things.  It often poisons our most important relationships.
