You may have seen this in Bible;
"Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered..." *
Fairly obvious advice, since we all know that an angry person can become violent and hurt us. We have learned over last decade or two that an abuser or criminal has often a submerged anger.
But how many of us can recognize latent or hidden anger in an individual? Is it possible to spot signs and avoid becoming too close to an angry friend?
Lets skip backwards, spin around three times and see if we don't land back at beginning where anyone first picks up a deep, unresolved anger.
Isn't it when someone disappoints us so hard, or doesn't measure up to promises or expectation, that we get that first gash to our spirit? If it happened to us as a child, we somehow don't sense permission to get angry over our disappointment, so we submerge it. Or we may be old enough to reason why promise really wasn't coming to us, or other person had every right to hurt us.
But that gash has been made, It doesn't follow that reasoning. Untreated, it festers and grows maggots.
Time passes, we grow older and we go on to other things. That gash eventually grows a scab over it. However, it is forever touchy, and if anything or anyone resembling original weapon which axed it comes near, all our spiritual nerves tingle, ready to take flight or to fight.
Those people who turn into physical hulks, or are confident in some other aspect of life, are likely to fight. It is old wound lashing back, and we call it an angry outburst.
