Angry feelings contain information. How we use this information (our behavior) is key. Our anger can motivate us positively—to try harder. Or negatively, to give up or lash out. Repressing anger is not the same as managing anger. Repression backfires. Managing anger allows us to communicate effectively with others and obtain useful information (and motivation) for ourselves.
