People are angry a lot these days. Whether it's based in political views or unfair treatment in the workplace, anger is a common occurrence.
According to Joël Malm, counselor, communicator, and pastor, anger is a secondary emotion. It is actually a response to the threat of one of three basic needs: safety and security, connection with others, and empowerment. Anger is the response we emit to try to regain control and to overcome resulting feelings of abandonment, rejection, and humiliation.
More than a mental state, anger can also have severe physical impacts -- particularly if you've held on to it for a lengthy period of time. Sleep issues, high blood pressure, depression, and inflammation are physical effects that can manifest due to chronic, unreleased anger.
In his book, Fully You: Unlocking the Power of All You Really Are, Malm provides tips on how to use anger, frustration and resentment for good, instead of letting it take hold of you in a negative way.
