    My Bedroom Door

    A few years ago I was fighting with my younger brother. I don't remember why any of it started (obviously for some stupid reason) but I got extremely pissed off. He kept trying to get into my room and I kept holding the door shut. Eventually I got so pissed off that I kicked my...

    Let Me Count the Things....

    I don't have much of a temper anymore (thanks to Lexapro and maturity), but I used to, particularly when I was a teenager. I've broken numerous things when angry: a phone, a plate, cups, a door, hangers, mirrors... the worst thing I ever broke was the windshield of my car when I...

    It's For You.

    When my ex wife cheated on me, we were fighting and during the fight the phone rang, and I answered it.  It was the guy who she had sex with while I was at work.  I hung up the phone and grabbed the fire poker from next to the fireplace, and swung at the wall phone, and...

    I Crack On Occasion

    I have definitely had a few breakdowns where I started to throw **** and shatter things on the floor, but not for a very long while.  This one time I was trying to upset my husband, for who knows what reason, I think I probably was having a chemical imbalance. ...

    I'm not known to be an angry person,

    but damn do I have a lot of built up anger towards myself, not only I take my anger out on my self by punching myself, getting high to the point that I'm close to an overdose. I have broken things that hold sentimental value to me. I smashed up an eagle statue my friends brought...

    But Not Things I Care About

    I am rather an emotionally suppressed person. At least, I was until a couple years ago. I finally realized that I do have a bad temper, I just hid it well. When I acknowledged that, it seemed so much worse. I hate showing it, but it's better than turning it inward to self-harm. I...

    On Accident Though...

    Once, I slammed the door because I was angry at my mom and brother and I went to turn but stubbed my toe on my bookshelf and one of my ballet trophies from when I was probably like two or three fell and broke the little brass person that was melted on.

    Cabinet Doors

    I was a habitual slammer. If it didn't slam good enough the first time, I would do it over until I was satisfied.  This tended to occasionally mess up a cabinet door or the window in the door that goes to the garage. That window was replaced with Plexiglas. Yep, I was not...

    I Must Have a Short Temper....

    Oh, I've done this! Many many times. I get so angry that I grab whatever is in reach and I throw it. It doesn't matter what it is, I just throw it. Doing this has cost me alot to replace some of the things that were broken, and I've also lost things that were not replaceable, but...

    My Anger...

    It takes a lot to bring me to this point but when it happens all I can say is watch out. I wouldn't say I even just "break things", I become totally destructive. My earliest memory of this behavior was when I was 13. That was around the time it was becoming obvious that my mom...

     I have broken many things in my lifetime especially when I got older. The one thing I can't replace which was broken is my spirit.

    I Love the Sound of Glass Breaking

    One day, I opened up at the bar I used to work at.  After I had set everything up [stocking beer, filling ice bins, laying rubber mats, etc...], the manager on duty looked at me and said that he had to send me home.  All because of a teeny, tiny nose ring I...

    Washing Up

    I've just cut my hand washing up. I don't normally say what's on my mind because I cant get the words out when I need to. I prefer to keep quiet and keep my head down and get on with things until they all come out. I just smashed a mug in the sink as I washed up. ...

    And Feel Sorry

    This is not actually a good topic even to be brought out. But sadly I did. And I regret it, that I can't even talk about it with my kids around. I won't let my kids let this part of me be known to them. And also glad I can control this part of me.

    Broken Toy

    I remember once, I broke my favorite toy as a child after throwing a fit, with no one to blame but myself.  My favorite toys had always been barbie dolls, but among the barbies my favorite was the Theresa doll.  I always preferred her over blond Barbie any day. ...
