We all know what anger is and we’ve all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage. Anger is a completely normal, usually considered as a healthy human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems – problems at work, in your personal relationships and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Memories of traumatic or enraging events can also trigger angry feelings.
