Is anger ever justifiable? Should you be angry? Is it healthy? What is anger?

So let’s start by talking about what anger is. Anger is defined as a strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a wrong, grief, trouble. Justifiable means something that can be shown or can be defended as being just, right, or warranted.

So, when is having a strong feeling of displeasure just plain right.

If a car pulls out in front of you and you get angry, is that justifiable, is that defendable as right? Yes or no…You’re probably right. The question becomes what do you do with the anger? Do you hold on to it, do you let it fester and cause you to become more upset…or do you allow the feeling and emotions of anger to move through you in a healthy way. Do you process the anger so you end up on the other side…which is always love…Or do you hold on to the anger against the person, the act, the situation or the principle and turn it into a resentment?

Anger is a normal human function which allows us to avoid situations and people that may harm us or not be good for us. It’s a built-in defense mechanism. When we allow anger to process properly, by experiencing our anger, not raging about it and not holding grudges and resentments, we move through anger to a more peaceful place.

When a situation occurs, I may become angry as a result of how it affects me or my perception of the incident. I recognize my anger, I might even say I’m angry, or raise my voice to no one in particular saying I’m angry at this situation because (adding my reasons) and allow it to move through me not hold on and stuff it.

For me, it’s okay to be angry at a situation, person, place, principle. The key is to be angry not to be angry at or with someone and take it out on them.
