    Unresolved Anger

    I believe this at 100%.  The more we keep inside, the more we get aggravated and sick afterwards.  It was said by a medical professional, when we tend to keep things bottled up, we have more chances getting ill, like cancer and all.  Anger can do so much to a person.

    anger meant shutting up. pathetic how people in desperate need of control are so fearful of losing it that they feel the need to forbid others to express.
