Anger Management & Causes of Anger
There’s no use getting angry with people just because they don’t have traits that you want.

Sometimes when you live a life of fear, you eventually get angry that you are allowing fear to rule you and may even get angry because in your mind’s eye there isn't anything that you can do to it. But that’s not true. You can deal with anger effectively by cutting to the chase and getting to the root of it.
