Anger can be described as some kind of Emotional gate keeper. On one hand, it can store all our emotions inside us and make it much easier for us to manage all our other emotions. On the other hand, anger protects our other emotions from harm, but if it starts overprotecting them, it might lock them up inside and make it difficult to use them later on.
Anger can be in charge of our many other emotions, such as pain, disappointment, grief, humiliation and more. Anger locks these emotions whenever we feel that somebody is trying to take an advantage of those emotions. However, if anger becomes a regular thing and starts building a fence between our emotions and the outer world, then it can harm us by lowering our self confidence and the ability to feel those other emotions.
It is important to work on self anger-management. Showing a little anger when appropriate is a necessity; it helps us communicate with others, while showing them if and when we get offended by their actions. Although, if we let anger override our other emotions on a permanent basis, then instead of helping us, it might turn against us and build a wall between us and the social surroundings that are near us.
