    He's nothing but sweet to me and I flipped out on him because I'm tired and was trying to take care of some business

    I take it out on anything

    or anyone. My poor family and boyfriend have been the recipients of my anger. I feel like I am ruining the lives of all those around me. I can't keep hurting people but I can't stop. It is especially worse if I am tired. It is especially bad when I am tired after work. I wish I...

    I get pissed at the simplest of things.

    Misspelled words, unfinished sentences, and(OMG) stupid people! It's like "Wtf is wrong with this world?!? Who the hell made up 'twerking'?!? Wtf is ' supercalifagilisticexpialidocous'?!?"

    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...

    I have always worn my emotions on my sleeves.

    I get angry so fast that it shocks me sometimes. I black out and before I know it I'm back and I'm looking at the person who made me angry. I don't mean black out as in passing out. I can feel and see myself going off but I can't hear or comprehend any of it. I don't understand...
