Anger is a strong emotional state of being upset or frustrated which makes a person hurt someone for doing something unkind to them. The causes of anger are multifactorial. Abusive past, suppressed emotions, stress, living in an environment where people get angry often, poor self-esteem, low tolerance levels are a few factors that make a person prone to getting angry easily. Genes, too, play a significant role in how a person reacts to a situation and the intensity with which he/she reacts to a situation. Anger is a natural emotion and is safe as long as it is mild, expressed appropriately and resolves quickly. It is when anger swings to extremes, is aroused by the most trivial issues, leads to disturbed relationships or is difficult to cope with that it becomes a condition that needs treating.
