How to do better: Connect with a therapist
It’s not always easy to pinpoint the source of displaced anger. In some cases, the source can be random day-to-day occurrences such as a built-up frustration from running late for an appointment, being reprimanded at work, or a traffic accident. However, the source can also be more traumatic such as the loss of a parent or childhood trauma. A therapist can help to identify the source and cause you to recognize when and how you direct this anger at others.
