Dear Readers

This is the continuation of the previous post as promised if you didn’t read the previous article about anger i suggest  you should do so by clicking on the provided link. The Benefit of Anger.

Having talked about Anger in our previous post lets now analyze the benefit of anger in human life.


Anger is certainly anything but an unfamiliar phenomenon and is infamous for its vicious capability of bringing about unfavorable consequences. As horrible as it seems, it paradoxically, has a major benefit, which sometimes times actually can also be self-defeating, but all the same a crucial factor.

Well, how? As mentioned earlier, anger is  our  innate form of self defence and covers up the pain of our “core hurts.” These key distressful emotions include feeling ignored, unimportant, accused, guilty, untrustworthy, devalued, rejected, powerless, unlovable even unfit for human contact.

It’s an unconscious (and, in some cases, conscious) attempt at self-soothing and this defence mechanism which drastically boosts the self-esteem when it’s in full swing.

Although we’re hardly left in a state of inner harmony and may actually be experiencing substantial turmoil , our defensive anger still permits us to achieve a certain comfort. After all, we’re not wrong, or bad, or selfish, or inconsiderate; it’s our spouse, our child, our neighbor, our coworker. Granted, this desperate reaction may be self-soothing of the last resort, but it’s a kind of self-soothing nonetheless. In short, if we can’t comfort ourselves through self-validation, we’ll need to do so through invalidating others. And people who suffer from chronic depression typically have not learned how to avail themselves of this potent, though ultimately self-defeating, defense.

Anger as the Low Road to Self-Empowerment

If anger can help us self-medicate against all sorts of psychological pain, it is equally effective in helping ward off exasperating feelings of powerlessness.

If i wish to compose, write, pray or preach well, i must be angry. Then all the blood in my veins is strirrd and my undertsa nding is sharpen. – Martin luther King jnr

It’s ironic but immensely logical: a person or situation somehow makes us feel defeated or powerless, and reactively transforming these helpless feelings into anger instantly provides us with a heightened sense of Control for example During the slavery in American Blacks were angry because of the suffering they were going true, and really needed a change, which was one of the major cause of the American Civil war their Anger was unto positivity not negativity thats why i say anger is a necessity in our life but how we put it to action is what matters. I’m convinced that anger is employed universally to bolster a diminished sense of personal power. Contrary to feeling weak or out of control, the experience of anger can foster a sense of invulnerability.
Anger is arguably the most toxic emotions there is, and it’s okay if you experience it occasionally. However, the key factor is controlling it, as with all other emotions, and keeping it in check.

Being angry for a Change is very allowed
