Being angry also triggers a fight response, causing people to be aggressive or combative when they are angry. This is the reason why some people can get so angry that they say or even do things that they regret later on.
After we get angry, our body then starts to calm itself down. However, the process is not exactly quick. It can take a while for a person to recover from the heightened state while they are angry, sometimes hours or even days, and in this state, people can get irritable and prone to being angry once more.
However, this does not mean that we can’t do anything about our anger. Just like any other emotion, we can learn to control our anger and manage it.
