Lordeâ tries to bring out the possible causes of anger that affectpeople. Many situations may seem not to affect people negatively, butat the end of the day, some get angry on the approach of how an issuewas handled. People raise a lot of questions on why the issue washandled that way. Lordeâ has addressed many instances that angerprevails. This instance makes some people`s self-esteem go low asthey feel inferior and unwanted. It may not be easy to avoid anger,but it is possible to control and learn from it (Puglia, et al.2015).

Consultation andconsideration can at least help reduce anger after an agreement.Anger should not be brought by fear. Fear avoids reaction toinstances where one discovers they did not go the right way.
