Anger

Anger is an emotion just like happiness, embarrassment, fear, and sadness.  Anger becomes dangerous when it becomes the foundation of your actions.  Anger is powerful and should be treated with respect.  How often have we seen perfectly sane and rational people make life altering decisions because of anger?  Anger is usually released when some sort of boundary has been crossed.  It tells us we’ve been hurt or violated and did not want to be.  It is how you react to anger which determines whether or not you control anger or it controls you!  Enjoy some quotes related to anger.
