I Have Anger Issues

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,268 People

    When it comes to emotions,

    for me the easiest emotion is anger. I get angry in a drop of a hat, and I can go from 0 to 100 in a split second. I know what's wrong with me. I'm just angry. I hate being angry majority of the time. I've wanted to go talk to a therapist but my parents jumped down my the last...

    It's Not The Anger, It's The People

    This is called i have anger issues, but it should be called, I have people issues because I believe that people are the problem before the anger is, at least with me. Whenever my temper flares, I get extremely violent and aggressive. Before I get misunderstood, there are only 3...

    I don't like people

    I get pissed off really fast. I have a low tolerance for stupidity. I am not a patient girl and I will completely ignore you or glare at you if I feel as though you are not holding any significance to my time. I will start a fight if necessary and I don't like attention hoarders...

    I have had to go to anger management

    because I use to get mad for everything. It helped, now I only get mad when people REALLY annoy me and things don't get to me that easily. But when I do get mad, it's still terrible.

    It's like I have two settings.

    Calm, or intense rage. There is no gray area for me. There's a slight build up of annoyance at first, but then there's sheer anger. When I was younger I used to black out from anger, but when I realized how scary it all was I began to keep it all in. But now that I'm older...

    I am a very sweet person.

    I love to smile and I'm always caring and kind. I'm laid back and quiet most of the time but lately I've noticed that I've been getting angry a lot. I don't yell or scream or hit anyone. I keep everything inside but I can feel the anger in my heart. I'm trying to find peace.

    Rage

    I'll be completely honest and truthful, I'm a recovering rageaholic. I've always had a horrible temper until about a year ago. A year ago I punched my abusive father in the face and ended up being arrested for it. I was sent to a county rehab center and punched a guard there...

    That's the one flaw I think I have.

    I won't get into details, but I have this rage inside that stays with me all the time. I just control it, like Bruce Banner. I'm always angry...I just keep it locked away.

    Release The Anger.

    I tend to let my anger build up over time. Everytime someone is rude to me or not nice, anytime something ****** me off, I just swallow it down and suppress it. This is a recipe for disaster, because the anger then gathers and builds up and will then be released in a far more...
