A man got in an argument with someone else and his anger built up. That anger is made him do a terrible thing. Anger or hate can dwell in a person until they do something they will regret, or as a result of that. In the poems “A Poison Tree” by William Blake and “A total stranger one black day” by e. e. cummings both display the idea that anger can be the cause of something a person can regret or the result.
Anger is and always will be a part of life. My anger issues have been a challenge all my life. It has always gotten the best of me when I knew that I could do better. In my mind, it seems as if I can control myself and keep myself out of trouble. However, a situation always seems to find me. Due to my temper, an unfortunate accident caused death in my family.
In our life, we meet many people that have anger issues. People have anger issues because they could have been abused by the people they love or they had a terrible experience from childhood. I read two books that had a similarity which, Ruthless from the book called Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams and Cole from the book called Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen. Cole and Ruthless have similarity in life, Cole was abused by his father, Ruthless experience during her childhood, and Cole and Ruthless have a difference in life. People could manage to control their anger issues by facing their problems.
As Buddha once said, “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” (Rosberg, Johanna. "Holding Onto Anger Is Like Drinking Poison and Expecting the Other Person to Die - Buddha.") This quote explains that there is no punishment for anger, what you decide to do with your anger, now that is up to you. Anger can cause unpredictable behavior if it is taken into its own hands improperly. Poe and Blake use point of view and actions to convey that holding in anger and revenge can drive one to do uncharacteristic actions unlike their behavior.
When anger is expressed, it can be used as a tool to reveal pressing ideas or opinions that can be deeply troubling to an individual. Conversely, when anger is shown, the outcome is usually in the field of disagreement, refusal or non-optimistic standpoints. Specifically, throughout history, a majority of women have been expected to absorb all systems
Texas A&M International University was lucky enough to have a speech given by Dr. Martha Nussbaum. Dr. Nussbaum is a philosopher famous for her novel, Anger and Forgiveness, which discusses anger in our culture today. The lecture given reflected that. Throughout the lecture, Dr. Nussbaum discussed many different topics, but her main goal was to show the different effects of anger. “Anger is a big threat to democratic politics, and it is all the worse when fueled by…” she states, “A kind of lurking fear and a sense of helplessness.”
Anger is not a good, thing, and should be kept under control, for causes people to act rashly and clouds their judgment. An example is when Cole tries to explains why he beat Peter Driscal up, he explains that it was the anger that caused him to act out and behave irrationally(Mikalsen 234) This means that Cole did not mean or want to hurt Peter, but his anger clouded his judgement and convinced him to beat up and bash Peter on the sidewalk. This shows that anger causes people to do things they normally wouldn’t even think of doing. Therefore, anger should be held back and taken out somewhere else, otherwise it could hurt people.
Dr. Sandra Wilson (2001) provided great insight on why people do what they do in her book “Hurt People Hurt People”. As a Correctional Case Manager for North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women in North Carolina, I have heard many stories from hurt women who have hurt others and as a result landed in prison. So many times I thought to myself that if this person had received therapy or counseling earlier in life, it’s possible that this circumstance would never have happened. Affect
Anger is a normal emotion with a wide range of intensity, from mild irritation and frustration to rage. It is a reaction to a perceived threat to us, or some part of our identity. Anger motivates powerful and aggressive feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and defend ourselves when we are attacked. Anger is a warning bell that tells us that something is wrong. Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims. Anger can be a good thing, it allows expressing negative feelings. Anger protects humans from sitting and boiling inside body and mind. It stops the rise of many physical illnesses and mental distress. Expressing the feeling of Anger indicates human’s surviving and existence. This feeling
For instance, anger leads to brutal acts of violence in the Criminal Minds episode “Children of the Dark.” In this episode, a man’s rage leads him to commit the most extreme act of violence: murder. This man was abused by his foster family and the memories of the constant abuse stayed with him as he grew older. The man, reacting to the years of abuse and the anger the abuse created, decides to kill random families and lastly targets his own foster family. The man’s violent acts illustrate that anger is a dangerous emotion that puts others in harm’s way (“Children of the Dark”). Evidently, instead of coping with the rage and learning how to control it, the intense anger succeeds and turns the man into a murderer. Due to the lack of control over this influential emotion, the man allows anger to take hold of him and causes him to commit awful actions. Hence, anger can lead to unwanted and unfavorable consequences. Furthermore, if anger cannot be controlled, it will most likely result in acts of

According to, Mills (2005) anger is “Typically triggered by an emotional hurt, anger is usually experienced as an unpleasant feeling that occurs when we think we have been injured, mistreated, opposed in our long-held views, or when we are faced with obstacles that keep us from attaining personal goals. (p. 1)” When individuals decide to allow that anger to manifest as aggression, destructive behavior follows. Aggression can be taken out on someone in the form of fighting either physically or verbally. Or through self-destructive behavior such as starving oneself or self-mutilation. Although anger and aggression can carry negative connotations it is important to remember that anger can be both constructive or destructive (Mills, 2005). When used constructively anger allows individuals to gain a sense of awareness and correct the stressor that cause them anger. Whether an individual uses anger constructively or destructively along with how intense their anger becomes can all be affected by their genetic
People often behave differently when their anger has been evoked, which can be quite negative in particular circumstances. A quick decision made during a fit of rage can have an enduring impact on your life, and its' often not a good one.
We know that when we can’t control anger we’re also more likely to harm ourselves as well as others.
The point is that claiming some of the anger can be healing and productive. For example in “Six Reasons Not to Forgive,
