I remember when I was 14 and I moved from Ottawa to Toronto. Days leading up to leaving my best friend and I kept getting into arguments. It turned out it was because neither of us wanted to say good-bye and sometimes it's easier to be angry with somebody than to be vulnerable and have the feeling of missing them. Anger I have learned recently is a secondary emotion that is masking a deeper feeling that you are having but sometimes hurts too much to bring to the surface, feelings like perceived rejection which impact us to our core. I am emotionally intelligent but from time to time I find myself being that 14 year old again and I forget to just let myself be vulnerable and simply tell somebody important to me 'I miss you'.
