Anger is a very normal emotion experienced by all people and is triggered through frustrations.
- Situations may not turn out the way they were expected.
- We do not get what we want.
- Other people are not acting the way we want them to.
There are times when we all become irritated, annoyed, frustrated and very angry and often express this emotion in very inappropriate ways that can offend or even violate the rights of another person, such as our family, friends and strangers. Expressions such as, swearing, yelling, shouting and disobeying the law often result in inflicting emotional hurt towards others and in extreme cases, can produce physical aggression towards both people and obstacles that happen to be in the way.
What does the anger cycle look like?
This is the most common way we, as humans, process anger and the cycle usually keeps going until someone or something breaks it.
The Anger Process
Psychologists generally agree that anger is a natural experience of all humans at times and actually renders a survival function that can bring about resources for remedial action. When anger becomes uncontrollable, however, it can be detrimental to both people and communities. Anger displays can be used as a tool to manipulate personal social gain.

With the use of Time Line Therapy ™ and Neuro Linguistic Programming, effective emotional and behavioural changes can take place. These therapies target the primary cause of past-unresolved anger to reduce the emotional affect. This process will not prevent future anger, which is, of course, the natural occurrence to a frustration, but will play a positive role in the prevention of situations triggered by past-unresolved anger.
