    Sometimes I wonder how long it's going to take

    me to just completely lose my mind on every single person who has the misfortune of speaking to me at the moment I crack.

    You Would Never Understand

    I used to lash out, and it really helped.  Now I can't... apparently it's bad, to beat the crap out of someone, when they insult you. People don't understand, they think I should be able to control it.  I am trying my best.  I haven't hit anyone...

    Just because I have my phone in my hand

    When I'm mad at someone,

    I draw a monster that I want to use to hurt or kill them, depending on how pissed I get. Lol, judge me, Idc. It's my way of expressing my anger, at least I don't hit them or talk back, right?

    But It Was Hidden For So Long!

        My story about anger is a bit different.  I was always a nice girl, always doing the right thing, being what everyone wanted me to be, keeping quiet, never stirring the waters.  I have only recently realized that I am angry, REALLY ANGRY, deep inside...

    I Lose Control

    I first started having anger problems when I was in middle school, but it was nothing major. I'd just get mad, scream, cry, and it was over with. When I was a freshman in high school things escalated. When I got angry I would completely lose control of my body. I'd flail around...

    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.

    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...

    Sudden, Short Bursts

    I'm always so angry at myself.

    No good reason. I have everything I could want, a loving family, good education, no issues, nobody bullying me, but I dare to actually create more problems out of the dust that's covering my life.

    release the bottled up emotions inside of me is by screaming so loud I shake the foundations of this house. Why is that my only form of relief?

    I get mad at the smallest things.

    For an example, if my mother put a plate the way I don't in the rack, I'll tell her she's stupid. Yesterday, we started badminton in gym and my partner - who's also my friend - was horrible. She couldn't serve and she didn't use any energy to hit. I tried to keep it in. After...
