Anger is an emotion just like all your other emotions. It is there for a reason! It is trying to tell you there is a person, problem, or situation you need to deal with now. Anger is not the problem until it turns into AGGRESSION or HOSTILITY. Aggression is a behavior that is intended to cause harm or injury to another person or damage to property. Hostility refers to a set of attitudes and judgments that motivate aggressive behaviors.
