Noone reacts with anger/rage without a sense of hurt. This usually is a result of feeling disregarded or dismissed. The messages we get are typically- "you - are wrong, don't count, are invalid, invisible, unlovable, bad..etc." This triggers our core hurts. This core hurt reflects our personal issues... We are reactive to what we interpret and what we interpret are our own issues. What we miss and need to do is anchor our own core values to not react to what we interpret. In anger management we learn intentionally engage our core values and strengths rather then these core hurts. We learn to stop habitually reacting and start behaving intentionally.
