Anger is an emotion that, when expressed assertively treats self and others with dignity, and helps us stand up for ourselves to clarify and express what we need or want, like or don't like, etc. On the other hand, anger, as an automatic defense strategy, can damage both ourrelationships and personal health. As a defense strategy, anger is expressed in one of two ways. Some express their resentment outwardly, such as with yelling, and others express it inwardly, by withdrawing, stewing with resentment inside. Awareness of inner thoughts, emotions & body's signals, and understanding how brain & body work together are keys to regulating anger.
