    Sometimes...i Have A Bit Of A Temper...

    I used to be this really calm, laid back type of person and really patient. It used to be hard to make me angry. Recently, I feel like I've totally lost control of my temper. I get angry at sometimes the smallest things. And not just angry, like...furious. I don't know if its...

    Unusual Thing?

    I have an anger problem and it's not a common thing. I mean it's not what usual people scenarios. Like having uncontrollable anger that is so scary to see. (Mental image? Hulk) Whenever I feel hurt by someone, I usually just let it go by not thinking about it or cry. And after...

    Disarm

    The problem with my anger is not hurting others or getting into a verbal brawl of epic proportions. No, no, no the problem is decidedly more complex. I don't know how to 'disarm' my anger. I can't seem to be able to just think of neutral topic or find the root cause and work...

    Too Much to Bear.

    Sometimes the anger in me is bigger than I am, I can't hold it in, it is bursting my guts almost.  I just don't know how to get rid of it or make it go away.

    A Penny For My Thoughts? Make It A Couple Thousand, And Maybe We'll Talk.

    I've had anger issues for a while it seems, but no one is truly aware of the severity and depth of it sometimes; probably because I'm too afraid to allow anyone to give me a penny for my deepest thoughts.. I'm not entirely sure I even feel comfortable in my own thoughts - it's a...

    When I get angry, I tend to do and say things that I don't mean. I try to stay away from taking my anger out on the wrong people because that's not fair.
