I am wondering if it might be harmful for a person to keep aggressive(and possibly violent) tendencies inside a persons mind and body instead of doing something physical to release them. I don't mean something physical as in violence but there probably are many different ways to release those tensions. Someone once said that kicking when swimming helped him release some pent up feelings. Punching a punching bag would seem to a way to that. It would seem that to keep anger and aggressiveness inside could lead to some problems like maybe a chemical imbalance and/or the lowering of a persons immune system. If a person feels anger and aggressiveness swelling up inside it seems that person would feel a tightening of their muscles and a contraction of their arteries. Of course the best way to deal with such feelings would be to find out why they happen and then do something about them. But I think a lot of people feel what I am talking about. Maybe more than we realize but I think most people would rather not talk about it because it casts a negative light on themselves.

This is why therapists have water floating things or foam bats
or tennis rackets in their offices to hit pillows.
Scream alone in your car while squeezing the steering wheel thinking it is someones's neck...You won't last 5 minutes doing thsat!
Anger or aggression ....all gone....like
letting off steam...on TV they show women throwing plates...same thing...
You 'redirect'.

And yes, of course, it is unhealthy to swallow anger...or have it in the first place.
There must be medical studies on it...I'm no expert.
