My girlfriend keeps getting irritated for the silliest of reasons. As a result, I have to face the brunt of her anger. She hollers for anything and everything. I used to keep quiet and not react but now I cannot take it any more. It’s obvious that she has anger management issues.

Dear Jai,
Anger seems to be intrinsic of your girlfriend’s personality. There are many people who flare up without any rhyme or reason. You need to sit down and talk to her. Tell her it is causing havoc in the relationship. If she gets all fired up for even the silliest of reason, it is clear that she needs help. As she is unable to manage her anger, it is making her into a monster. A psychologist can help her deal with her specific problems.
