What’s hiding behind your anger.

Anger is  easily accessible to us and we use it to conceal other, more complicated, primary emotions.  Anger can be seen as a strong emotion which we use to cover up weak, primary emotions, such as hurt, humiliation, or shame, which make us feel weak and vulnerable. We generally do not like feeling vulnerable, especially in a situation of conflict or whenever we do not feel emotionally safe. Therefore, we find different ways to avoid that vulnerability.
