Anger is not just any old emotion. It’s special. In fact, it’s so special that a 2017 survey by the Mental Health Foundation of 2000 people found that 28% are sometimes worried about the level of anger that they feel.
First, let’s outline what makes anger different from other emotions, and then we’ll talk about how you can use this information to become happier and healthier in your life.
5 Ways Anger is Special
Anger’s power means that it warrants special training in childhood. It was your parents’ job to teach you how to recognize anger when you have it, how to discern its message, and how to let it motivate and energize you in the way it’s meant to do. But far too many of us are raised by parents who do not have these skills themselves. This sets you up to ignore your own anger or over-use it, each of which can put your health at risk.
