    Everyone has a temper.

    And everyone looses it sometimes. Having a bad temper means you loose your temper too easily or often- relatively. I need to work on not loosing my temper.

    Short fuse. Anything can **** me off easily

    enough if I let it. I hate it. I wish I could be that person that let's things slide and doesn't worry about dumb stuff, but it's hard. Thanks dad for giving me your attitude.

    I so wish that I never let my emotions get the better of me - and there are definitely times that I am stronger than others. It is sad, but, most people outside my family, do not ever witness my temper - it is not sad that they don't get to see it - it is sad that I reserve...

    Well... This is so true,

    but only if "at times" means "all the time, except when I am asleep". Even then, I guess I can get pretty angry in my dreams. Lucky I have learned to keep my temper under control... mostly.
