    It's been said that "Anger is the mask that Hurt wears".
    Most fights or arguments are about establishing boundaries or a reaction to feeling disrespected. It is healthy to have enough self-esteem to stand up for yourself when you feel you are being mistreated. However it is a detriment if one flies off the handle simply for the sake of trying to intimidate or run roughshod over people.
    If you are fighting a lot with someone it is probably best that you move on. No amount of "communication" or "work" can over come being with someone who does not want what you want.

      The anger has to come out sometime and I agree too much is time to move on.

    Not at all. Anger gets blood pressure up, can lead to heart attacks. Anger also leads to plenty of eating. Then some lash out, break things. Etc, etc, etc.

    Yes I do because it is a natural emotion and reaction to something that is making you angry, but I think you need to make sure that it doesn't get out of hand where you start to get angry for no apparent reason or for simple things.
