Negative thoughts of anger include thoughts of inflicting harm on oneself or others. Remaining angry over a long period of time may be linked to feelings of depression.
Emotionally, anger can be channeled positively towards working towards perceived needed change and creating feelings of relief. Negatively, anger may cause feelings of hurt or pain. One may become withdrawn, depressed, or feel overwhelmed by anger, resulting in feelings of rage.
