Anger is usually tied to a strong perception of wrongdoing and a drive to address or undo that wrongdoing. Sometimes anger is a natural response to a set of circumstances and other times it is not. Anger can certainly be toxic when it drives your emotions in negative ways and results in behavior that can be self-destructive.
An example of toxic anger is when somebody perceives a personal slight when perhaps none was intended. This can lead to insulting the source of the comments and then being estranged and isolated from them and others as a result. Toxic anger often builds on its self and compounds over time, and can therefore result in health challenges.
Similar to sadness, anger can be manifested as emotion, mood, or temperament.
