Anger in marriage
Is it wrong to feel angry?
A good question. Certainly anger is not a comfortable feeling to have. It may be a slow smouldering feeling burning us up inside, or perhaps a fierce boiling feeling ready to overflow into words and actions at any moment.
Actually the feeling of anger is very simply the reaction inside us to something someone has done or said or an event that has occurred.
When do you feel angry?
I feel angry when someone has let me down, lied to me or ignored me. Beneath that is a need in me to be valued which has not been met.
Sometimes I feel angry over an injustice and that spurs me on to do something about it, if I can.
There is nothing morally wrong about feeling anger at something, but most of us would agree that it would be wrong of me to hit my husband, because I was angry with him. What we do with our anger is so important.
