Anger: A Misunderstood Emotion

4 min readOct 20, 2023

Growing up as children, we have a few basic emotions, the most emotive and most destructive of these is our anger. An emotion that brings the worst out of most, we are taught to fear it and to be wary of those who are angry.

A last-resort emotion

It’s normally an emotion that gets used as a very last resort out of desperation or when someone or something has gotten under our skin and has worked our very last nerve.

This is when we tend to explode in a fit of uncontrollable rage and furious anger, much like angry children blind to all that we do. All we know is that we feel like breaking the world and inflicting as much pain, damage and suffering on what caused us to fly into that fit of rage to begin with.

Never been taught how to control it

This is because we were never taught how to control, focus or hone our anger, let alone understand its true power. That is what anger is, it’s the most powerful emotion we have it’s a savage primal fire.

It always makes me laugh when I take a step back and that there is only one other emotion that can arouse the same passion and fervour that anger does can you guess what that is???

It’s love. There is a reason why they both share the same colour on the emotional…
