Profound Quote Collection On The Dangers of Toxic Anger, something we all feel at one point or another in life and perhaps, just part of human nature? But did you know that anger is one of the most toxic emotions/feelings we can have? Anger is quite frankly, completely destructive.


There are degrees of anger and also types of anger. Its common to feel angry now and then, even over small things. But when we let anger get the better of us and it becomes ingrained in us, it festers and becomes toxic, doing more harm to us than to the person we’re angry with.

Some people let anger become a second nature — they don’t deal with it and before long, they’re angry about everything. Some people though, particularly those with a higher emotional intelligence, don’t let anger control them. For example, those who can handle a little anger now and then, might be angry at injustice in the world and rather and simmering in the anger juices, they do something — they find a good, productive and effective way to help solve that injustice.
