“What do you mean? I don’t have any anger!”

“I’m just being assertive when I tell my boss off for his micromanaging.”

“I can’t help it! I just get so angry. I have to punch something.”

The above phrases belie misconceptions common in our society. These errors are due to the misunderstanding of the difference between anger, hostility, and rage.
