We all have an individual temperament, a way our personality is hardwired. Some of us respond with anger to things. What is "normal" for others may not be normal for you and vice versa. The trick is not to compare yourself to how others are, but to accept yourself as you are now. Ironically, as soon as you accept yourself as an "angry" person you will soon begin letting go of some of the anger.

We all feel different emotions at any different time and I think it's normal to be angry when you're in a situation that triggers anger. We have all dealt with different situations in our life and sometimes people deal with them in numerous ways.

Different things affect different people. Each individual experiences different feelings toward the same situation. Analyze why you are feeling angry, if the cause is justified, then feel good about the anger that you are exerting. Anger is not always a negative feeling. We feel angry when we see something that we don't agree with. You shouldn't feel bad about standing up for something that you believe in. Just make sure you turn that anger into something productive. Something that will help you move forward. Don't feel like you need to experience the same feelings as everyone else.

No one is the same. Everybody is different. if you are having issues with your emotions perhaps you should seek the advice of a therapist or counselor to help you sort them out. Or you could try a group session in your community like Emotions Anonymous. Good luck.

It is normal to exhibit or show emotions. Anger is an emotion where we show it whenever someone or something has hurt us. This is a response to what has taken place.

Anger is actually a normal human emotion. Although many of us would naturally consider anger as a negative emotion, as opposed to positive ones like joy, love, peace etc.. we tend to accept negative emotions like depression, anxiety, jealousy, guilt etc more readily as part of our human emotional experience. Some people may have learnt to suppress anger inwards. You don't feel them getting angry doesn't mean they don't feel that way deep inside.

Because every person is different. The way everyone think is different and we are good as we are. Being emotionally honest to ourselves and accept our emotional sides is a good thing. So it is normal. Not everyone having the same days as we had. So it is okay yo be angry sometimes although others not.

Everyone is different and have different circumstance, resource, etc. to respond so I guess it is okay to be angry

People express themselves differently..We are all different and have different triggers..Don't be too hard on yourself on the things that triggers you, instead figure out why these things triggers you and deal with that 1st..It goes a long way to deal with the base issue..

You may be feeling angry today. But guess what? You’re allowed to be. You are human, emotions are normal thing in our life, we can feel sad, happy or angry Unless your emotions are interfering with your day-to-day life, you can try to do some relaxing exercises that will help, It's normal and healthy to feel angry from time to time in response to certain situations. But sometimes people experience an uncontrollable anger that often escalates, especially when the provocation is minor. In this case, anger is not a normal emotion but a major problem.Some signs that your anger is not normal include: anger that affects your relationships and social life feeling that you have to hide or hold in your anger

You don't need a reason to feel angry or sad, or happy. Feelings are usually coming from a thought. A thought comes from your mind Your mind is your creation: the very particular way you see reality. Nobody else sees reality the same exact way you do. BE PATIENT with yourself. Your mind is trying to tell you something by making you feel angry. What is that your mind is angry about? Do you feel angry when you thing about particular things/aspects in your life? What is that your mind says " I am not capable of..." or " They make me feel this...:".. is there any pattern? What can you do today to get free from these thoughts? You can text me directly to talk about it if you feel you need to talk about it in more detail. Take care. Love and light.
