Positive consequences to your health of "exploding" and releasing many years' worth of repressed anger?

Recommended Posts

Is it better for your health to release anger over injustices you have faced or repress it over many, many years?

What are the repercussions of repressing your anger over many, many years? If you  one day explode and manage to release all that repressed anger to an individual who you think deserves it, would it be better for your health than a situation where you never 'exploded' at all?

Would you live a healthier life if you managed to get rid of all that anger through exploding onto someone else and venting/releasing all that steam and hidden anger?

False dichotomy. There are healthy ways of handling these feelings. You’ve not listed any, so the answer to your question is neither.

Please just answer the question properly. It is not a false dichotomy. Please assume you only have these options. There is no other option.

It doesn't cease to be false dichotomy just because you say so.

BTW: it's a false dichotomy.

Anger is as natural as sexual impulses or desire for food .. we have to suppress them or we're in a lot of trouble.  But there are also good uses for those things . . venting, making the wife/husband/self happy, staying healthy physically.  Expressing anger without being stupid and damaging a relationship permanently or getting jailed is acceptable for most people .. unfortunately it's not what is advertised in super hero comics as the ideal.
