Importantly, a person with an anger management problem will almost always find that their communication style and way of expressing anger is having a significant impact on their relationships (with co-workers, family members or friends).
Anger ranges in intensity, with some people experiencing mild (but constant) irritation and others feeling infrequent but intense bursts of rage. Whether mild or extreme, it doesn’t feel good to always feel angry. Anger also has the ability to put pressure on your physiological body – including a rising heart rate, increased blood pressure, and heightened adrenaline and energy hormone release – meaning that good anger management skills are also important for the overall health of your physical body.
Just as anger can range from mild to extreme, it can also present differently, with some people revealing their anger through raised voices, swearing, hitting others, throwing objects or verbally or physically lashing out at loved ones. Others may have less conspicuous symptoms, such as appearing a socially withdrawn or easily irritable.
