    Talking Upset vs Angry

    Hello

    Is there any difference between "upset" and "angry"?

    I feel like upset is weaker expression than angry

    Is that right?

    Yes, you are right.

    "I'm upset" is describing a weaker level displeasure than "I'm angry".

    If you are upset, you are not necessarily angry. You could just be unhappy or disappointed.
