“Anger is, like, a really pervasive odor; it just permeates every aspect of your life,” Dr. Phil says. “It changes your sensibilities, it changes your reactivity, it changes your irritability with your children, your friends, yourself – everything – and so unless you resolve that, it’s going to continue to control your life.”

He suggests asking yourself three questions to get to the root of why you're angry: What am I angry about? What’s triggering this? and What can I do to get resolution? Then, replace the word anger with hurt, fear or frustration.
