Why Are You Angry All the Time? And What Can You Do about It?

We all feel anger from time to time. It’s a normal and healthy emotion. But if you’re angry all the time, it could be a sign of a bigger problem.

There are many possible reasons why you might be feeling angry all the time. It could be due to stress at work or home, or it could be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. If you’re not sure why you’re feeling so angry, it’s important to see a doctor or mental health professional for help.

Some people try to cope with their anger by drinking alcohol or using drugs. But these substances can actually make your anger worse.

First, try to identify the things that trigger your anger, or what is the deep, original source of your anger. For example, are you angry because you feel like you’re not being respected? Or are you angry because you’re afraid of something? Once you know what’s causing your anger, you can start to address it.

There may be deep-seated explanations for why you are angry, which may have ntohing to do with the things that trigger you on a daily basis. Consider “Sarah,” a colleague of ours, who says, “I’m really mad at my boss, and it’s ruining my whole day.” But when we probed a little deeper, Sarah revealed that she was actually angry with her mother — who had passed away several years ago. In Sarah’s case, her anger wasn’t really about her boss at all. It was about unresolved feelings from her past. Or consider “Thom,” a neighbor of ours, who tells us he’s angry all the time because people are always cutting him off in traffic. But when we explore Thom’s anger further, we realize that his real frustration is with his wife, who he feels doesn’t listen to him.

For both Sarah and Thom, their anger was actually a symptom of something else going on in their lives. If you ‘re not sure what’s causing your anger, it can be helpful to talk to a therapist or counselor. They can help you explore the source of your anger and find healthy ways to deal with it.


There are also some practical things you can do to help control your anger.

First, when you start to feel angry, try to take some deep breaths and count to 10. This will help you calm down and give you a chance to think about what’s making you angry. Once you know what sets you off, you can try to avoid those triggers or deal with them in a more constructive way.

Second, try to stay away from people or situations that make you angry. If there’s someone at work who always gets under your skin, try to avoid them. If you get angry when you’re driving, try to take a different route.

Next, make sure you’re taking care of yourself. It’s important to practice self-care and manage your stress levels. Get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet. Take some time for yourself every day. These things will help you feel better physically and mentally, and they can also help reduce your stress levels. If you’re overwhelmed by anger, these simple steps can make a big difference.

Fourth, try to find healthy ways to express your anger. Don’t try to bottle up your anger. It’s important to let it out in a safe and constructive way. Otherwise, it could lead to problems like depression, anxiety, or even physical health problems. This might include talking to a friend or therapist about what’s making you angry, writing down your thoughts in a journal, or doing relaxation exercises. Some people find that techniques like yoga or meditation can help to reduce stress and anger. Others may need to take medication or participate in therapy to help manage their anger. You might also find relief by doing some physical activity, like going for a run or hitting a punching bag.

It’s possible that you may even be able to find a positive channel for your anger! Some people find that their anger can be a motivator to make positive changes in their lives. For example, if you’re angry about your job, maybe it’s time to start looking for a new one. Or if you’re angry about your relationship, maybe it’s time to have a talk with your partner. Sometimes, our anger can be a sign that something needs to change.

Of course, it’s important to make sure that you’re channeling your anger in a healthy way. Don’t use your anger as an excuse to hurt yourself or others. If you find yourself getting violent or out of control, it’s important to get help from a professional. But if you can harness your anger and use it to make positive changes, it can be a powerful force for good in your life.


It’s not always easy to deal with people who are angry all the time. If you have a friend or family member who is always angry, it can be tough to know how to deal with them. The most important thing is to be patient and understand that their anger is probably not really about you. It can also be helpful to try to stay calm and avoid getting into an argument. If you can, offer support and understanding. Sometimes, people just need someone to listen to them.

If you’re struggling to deal with an angry person, it’s important to reach out for help. You might need to distance yourself from the person for a while. Or you might need to get help from a professional, like a therapist or counselor. They can help you learn how to deal with the person in a more constructive way.


If you’re struggling with anger, know that you’re not alone. Many people deal with anger on a daily basis. But it is possible to manage your anger in a healthy way. With some effort and patience, you can learn to control your anger and lead a happier life. Most importantly, if you’re not sure how to deal with your anger, don’t hesitate to ask for help. There are many resources available to you, and you don’t have to go through this alone.
