Anger management in relationship

The emotion of anger is not always a negative feeling to experience. In fact, being 

angry in some ways can be a positive outlet and something that should not be ignored. 

However, having rage inside that results in harmful tendencies towards yourself or other people, and from which the source is painful experience, is not healthy at all. This type of anger should be dealt with before it escalates into more negative experiences. 

Designed for your protection and safety, anger/rage is ultimately your friend and close. But until you can accept this kind of feeling as a part of your being, you will tend to be at war with the emotion of anger as well as yourself.

Is it pain? Or is the root cause of the anger stemming from love?

2. Learn to identify the vast differences between the actions that are motivated by fear and the actions that are motivated by love. Again, this is very similar to number one above. Your goal should be to immediately identify your feelings of anger and the feelings of anger from other people and where they come from.

3. Understand that having courage is a result of the anger-love connection. Having courage to face a problem that has resulted from being anger with a loved one is a necessity in life, but only if that
