Anonymous asked: Sam, what is the point of anger? I mean, I get angry sometimes but it is something I can never hold onto for more than a couple minutes. It's not an emotion that resides well with me, so I let it go.
Anger is a primitive emotion which prepares us to fight. It causes physiological changes which render us less susceptible to internal injury and psychological changes which heighten agressiveness and increase our tendency toward risk taking.
