    Some people see me, and think that because I'm small (or short) and usually quiet, that I'm some kind of door mat. What they don't know is that I have a short, and explosive temper. I try to be patient, and usually I'm successful at not losing my cool on the outside, but on the...

    I'm not an angry person.

    I have a lot of patience, but when it comes to stupidity I blow up instantly. It's hard not to do so.

    Anger Is a Curse

    I hate it, and it scares me. Sometimes, I get so angry that I tremble and come very close to blacking out. I just want to scream and destroy everything in sight. This is very unnerving for me, a person who is usually very calm-natured. Should I get help or something? I don't...

    Family Problem....

    It seems having a short temper runs in my family. A lot of people I'm related to have not just a short temper but an explosive one. The kind where you throw things, yell, even do things you didn't know you could do. I'm slowly learning to control mine. Something happened one day...

    I feel bad about something I just did to a

    friend. He thought that he was playing around, but it seems I took it seriously. He kept pushing me and saying things until I had enough and got up and punched him around his heart area. I never hit anyone in my short tempered state, so I feel really bad.

    Sometimes, when I'm in a bad mood.

    I'll focus my anger on one thing and I'll just blow up at someone, usually family. It's not my best quality. I'm just so on edge all the time and I really don't even know what it's really even about a lot of the time.

    The littlest things set me off.

    I'm usually a calm person. I try to see where people are coming from and answer accordantly. However. It's when I become really mad and go off on someone when I feel insulted . That's the only time I will go off. And I'm pretty mean and nasty when I go off. I am a sensitive...
