I Sometimes Have a Fiery Temper

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 442 People

    I was born a brunette,

    but I dye my hair red and everyone thinks it suits me because of my temper. I'm like an explosive, and I love the fact that I'm spunky and fiery like that.

    Nuclear Blast

    back when I was in the Marines I had a temper with a long fuse. I would go through stages of annoyance to totally blowing up. Those who knew me knew to steer clear. Those who didn't, or those dumb enough to not heed warnings, got the full weight of my wrath. Later on in Iraq...

    And I am not proud of it.

    It's rare and it subsides just as easily but I know that I let it out and sometimes it's not a pretty picture. I try to keep it under control as much as possible.

    I have a pretty bad temper

    and tend to lash out randomly at people. For example past few days, I've pissed off A LOT of friends. In person at school, on iFunny, Facebook and on here. I actually stopped just short of full on punching someone I didn't even know because I was in a bad mood and they had...

    "i'm Not One To Be Messed With. I Can Be Real Bad When It Needs To Happen."

    Most of the time when I get mad I can just blow it off. But on those moments when the anger just keeps bubbling, and I can't seem to turn my cheek, I tend to say hurtful things.  I'm a very witty person. I have an amazing memory and can always put my words together perfectly...

    I have a tendency to let anger build up inside.

    I was taught to not cause waves and be over-emotional. Obviously, holding it in just makes it worse. There are times I get so angry I just see red. I cannot believe the things that come out of my mouth and the lack of self control. I have embarrassed myself a few times, looking...

    Pretty But Hot Headed

    I have this fiery side to me and recently my husband told me as well.  I have this innocent face (I am 41 but seriously look around 32) and people tend to take advantage until I open my mouth:-).  I am argumentative, sometimes lose my cool, have way to much energy for...

    Wild, And Scary

    I wrote a story about it here, but it scared too many people, so I deleted it. Besides, I don't lose my temper often. But, if and when I do, I actually scare myself! X@

    I'm not proud of it but I have a really bad

    temper. So much so that I have been called the hulk. When I get mad I lose control over my actions. I have never physically hurt anyone and don't believe I would ever but I do throw things, cuss, yell, and hit things. Certain things just trigger me to snap and when I snap I...

    I'm Angry

    Those who cross my path beware, for my wrath extends unobstructed. If my wrath is not cooled. I might not hurt you today, or even when I know of you as an enemy... I will wait. Then I will attack when you have something to loose...   I will make you loose everything...
