Anger… What Is It?

“Anger is only fear turned inwards…” Do you agree?

Personally, this sentence truly inspired me to think: What is anger? What provokes it? What makes it so powerful sometimes and so defeating at others? What are the things that cause us to feel anger and can they be avoided?

Driving along in the street going to a meeting, on your way to guy buy something or just heading out for a cruise, you get angry a million times at that driver who suddenly decides to switch lanes or this pedestrian who decides to cross the street without even taking a look to see if any cars are around or at that cab driver who suddenly stops to pick someone up… When I think of it now, why do we get that angry? Why might we shout or swear? Isn’t it the fear having of an accident; the fear for our lives and well being?

In a relationship, while you’re arguing about a certain issue or something that happened, you might also get angry… Why would you? I guess it’s the fear of losing that person that drives you and me to get angry and sometimes even lose our temper…

At home, sitting with your family, discussing family worries, sometimes you get angry and frustrated… Again, why? The fear that things at home might not go well or that one of your family members might cause uncalled harm to him/herself might be the main reason for that anger…

So now, once again I ask you all: Do you believe that anger is a result of fear?

    yup… most of the times, it is!!sometimes someone or something just gets on ur nerves and makes u angry! and there is no fear or anything in these situations, and u don't even care about that person!! and some other times, u get angry because some people r not respecting u, or some people r playing games with u… u don't care about these people, but the fact that they think that they can fool u, makes u angry!!u know what i mean?!

    I know exactly what u mean… But don't u feel that u are angry most when there is an opportunity cost? When u fear loss? U fear for ur pride, fear for ur loved ones, fear for ur sanity??? Think about it? I did!
