Anger

Summary

Read through the following text and look up any vocabulary you are not sure about before answering the questions.

Anger is a normal human emotion that can be triggered by many different situations. For example, you might get angry if someone cuts you up when driving.

Anger is a negative feeling that often leads to aggression and destructive behaviours. When we’re angry, it’s important to take time to cool down before responding. This will help prevent you from saying or doing something you might regret later.

Controlling your own anger is also incredibly important for maintaining healthy relationships with others and yourself, as well as ensuring that you don’t hurt anyone else by letting your anger get out of control.

Anger management classes are designed to help people learn how to effectively deal with their anger, whether that means dealing with it in a healthy way or letting it go. The classes are usually led by a therapist who has experience working with people who struggle with anger issues.
