Via Daily Dharma / Anger and Fear

It’s important to note that anger is a form of fear. Someone does something, and suddenly the mind feels ungrounded and reacts with anger, trying to reestablish a firm ground by reaffirming one’s narrow sense of self. Anger’s aim is to establish safety in that deluded way.

—John Makransky, "Aren’t We Right to Be Angry?"
