Are you ready to pay the price of your anger? Blog post by Amrita Mallik

It’s difficult to observe how uncontrollable injustice is spreading its fangs. It is also irksome to tolerate and feel helpless about it. And, all these accumulate to form the volcanic anger inside us. Though it is a natural side effect or human emotion, it shouldn’t be welcomed as a guest and served politely and grandly. In fact, it should be shown the exit as fast as possible.


Anger prevents logical thinking. It fogs the mind. And, this can be utilised by an enemy to get a person in the trap. Hence, decisions made in anger are made in haste. They also don’t hold up well to the light of day. An angry person tends to regret it later.

Long-term physical effects include increased anxiety, high blood pressure and headache. There can also be insomnia, heart attack and stroke. The constant flood of stress chemicals and associated metabolic changes cause irreparable damages to the different systems of the body.

Unhealthy expression of anger is equally destructive. Raging anger leads to physical and verbal abuse. It becomes a manipulative tool to feel powerful. Similarly, when some people bottle their anger sensing it is an inappropriate emotion, it leads to depression and anxiety. Some vent this suppressed anger to innocents like pets or children.

Often dealing with an argument makes a person sad or angry. It can be a very uncomfortable experience. However, no one should avert it. Instead, he can take help of a third person to act as go-between for both to get another view of the argument.

Although anger is a distressing emotion, it can be mobilised in the right direction to do something about the problem. It can also mean not allowing others to take advantage of you. Nonetheless the downside of anger far outweighs its benefits.
