Why do I explode with anger?

When internalized to the point of extremes, when the anger becomes so intense, a person may explode through angry emotions. Those who externalize their anger could struggle to control their feelings. They might react, erupt in wrath, and say things that impact others.

There can be many different reasons someone might experience sudden outbursts of anger. However, some common causes of explosive anger include stress, frustration, fear, and past trauma. 

Explosive anger may result from an underlying mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. It is also possible that explosive anger may be a learned behavior, meaning that it is a response that has been reinforced through repetition in the past.
