Anger as a positive instead

Anger has normally been defined in many cognitive constructs of the sentient individual as being one of the negative emotions that will do you more harm than good. I disagree because I believe as powerful the emotion itself may be if properly channeled, it can make a huge difference in communicative awareness. How do you feel anger should really be understood as? A negative deterrant to self-improvement? Or a new positive avenue that might promulgulate (to announce strongly) independence speaks with confidence while gently, assertively demanding respect?curious . . . sharing the light, Erica aka (also known as-- 'enlightenedpsych2'

I feel it is positive if channeled correctly, as you said. It is a feeling and must be expressed. It's not good for your mental health to stuff down your feelings. If you feel angry, you should express your anger as quickly as possible in an appropriate manner. Holding in your anger can cause you to suddenly explode with anger at an inappropriate time or in an innapropriate way. Anger that is not expressed can also lead to low esteem and depression.
