Dr. Megan Merriwether, PhD, a behavioral health specialist at The Everett Clinic, discusses anger. Anger is often a major part of why people seek therapy. Usually underneath the anger is a lot of fear and that fear is so debilitating that it causes us to feel angry. The anger becomes a cover for the fear. When you are feeling anger, it allows the opportunity to figure out why you are getting angry and being mindful of how you are reacting. Chronic anger is not good for your overall health and can causes stresses to your system.
