If you're feeling angry and irritable most of the time, it can be a contributing symptom of depression. Depression in children looks like anger most of the time, so just keep that in the back of your mind. But let's say you feel super angry because somebody did something mean and you just feel like you're going to blow up or something else happened and you just feel really angry and you don't know what to do with it. My best advice for that would be to workout. Do something that absolutely exhausts you. Whatever it is, whatever you have access to: go run, go to the gym, go to a boxing class, join martial arts. Do something that makes you feel like you can use all of the strength in your body and use it up until you're exhausted. Burn up the anger. Another thing is to write it out. Write out everything you're angry about and then edit it. Do it in the notes in your phone and you can edit it so that it gets to the most concise you can get it so you actually know how you feel. When you're angry about something, you don't want to tell the other person and drone on and on and off. They won't hear you and your point will get lost. What you want to do is you want to be able to say it in the least words possible. So that involves a lot of editing and a lot of writing out how you feel, edit down less, less, less and less. And then you can know to yourself how you feel and be able to express to the other person how you feel and hopefully have a much higher chance of them hearing you.
