The Link Between Anger and BPD

Inappropriate Anger in BPD

Borderline anger is more than just a standard emotional reaction. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, anger in BPD is described as “inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger.”

The reason anger in BPD is called “inappropriate,” is because the level of anger seems to be more intense than is warranted by the situation or event that triggered it. For example, a person with BPD may react to an event that may seem small or unimportant to someone else, such as a misunderstanding, with very strong feelings of anger and unhealthy expressions of anger, such as yelling, being sarcastic, or becoming physically violent.
