    I have been told when I am angry I don't need

    to say a word it just radiates out of me and is scary. I hide this side of me but the other day was really mad at my son and was talking on the phone with him and was getting really angry. My girlfriend was in the car and she never experienced me like that. She's cool but I...

    I don't know if I am a sociopath

    or just a ex street racer without a car but almost every second of every day I go through life with telling myself not to do something so that I don't get arrested. For example if im walking down the street and a car passes by and honks or yells at me then I get a knee jerk...

    I tend to hold a grudge for a long time and always looking for a time where I can have my revenge on whomever I disdain. I always never fail to include that I am incapable of actually hurting someone. I can't do it! I just can't tell people how I really feel because I think it...

    My vision is clouded by anger

    and hatred, I'm very angry all the time though I choose not to show it. I don't want people to know I'm an angry person, so when I walk around it's usually with a face people can't read. This way people don't know what I'm thinking and avoid me. When in all reality I'm a very...

    For some reason, the anger I am feeling

    for my father increases every seconds of every day. It has progressed to a point that just hearing his habitual coughing irritates me. It angers me that I wanted to punch the wall so bad, or hit him with my tennis racket...well, obviously I couldn't.

    My Anger Isn't Anger At All

    Anger is an easy emotion. It is easy to feel angry when really what I'm feeling is HURT. Vulnerable and insecure and stupid. I don't want to feel any of those things, so instead I will feel anger. I will HATE him for treating me like that (when in reality he's following...

    Holding anger is a poison.

    It eats you from the inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves..

    I Love My Anger

    I use my anger as power, as strength. I keep it bottled up and under extreme control until I know that I need to use it, and when I let it go it is.....magnificent. I don't mind being angry because when I am I make the world mine.
