I Sometimes Have a Fiery Temper

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 446 People

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    "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'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...

    Disruption

    I don't like disruptions in my life, when I talk disruption - I'm not talking about running into a friend on the way to work. I'm not talking about having a friend text me or IM me online. I'm talking about a major upheaval to what it is balanced routine designed to work to take...

    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.
