I have always struggled with the idea that anger is a bad emotion. Our emotions seem to get categorised as good and bad. A happy emotion are considered good and an unhappy emotion are somehow considered bad.
Labelling anger as a bad emotion suggests that it is not okay to get angry. Somehow we are supposed to keep these ‘bad’ emotions in check. Throughout our lives we are consistently told: ”Don’t get angry”, “Don’t be angry”, “Stop being angry”, “Life’s too short to be angry”.
