Anger shows a lack of Understanding

Whenever we become angry in a situation, we stop looking at what’s happening in order to be angry. By no longer looking at the situation, we stop being able to see or investigate the details in order to see a solution to our problem. So our anger actually blinds us and stops us from really seeing what’s going on around us. So Anger is a sign of misunderstanding, prevents further understanding, and increases our misunderstanding.
