    I'm Getting Better, I Think

    I used to destroy my entire room when I was a kid. It was the only way I knew how to get the anger out. WHen I got older I did the same thing. Nowadays I don't do it as much anymore. I think in the past 9 months I have gotten mad and thrown something twice. SO maybe I'm getting a...

    The Things I've Thrown.

    I threw a TV remote at my little brother once, he ducked, it went through the window. Wasn't my fault the window smashed, he shouldn't have ducked. I also threw a plate at a wall and a glass at my dad. The downside - My pity full wages are getting sucked up for replacements...

    Unintentionally, Sometimes.

    I'm not one to throw things across a room or break things on purpose, but when I'm angry I get much rougher handling things and have been know to sort of throw or shove things about rather than calmly move them when I'm terribly upset.

    I Threw Something. and Then Regretted It

    I can have anger issues.  I will curse a person out and be so overwhelming that whoever crossed me will leave the room/house and not come back until they think I've cooled off...this is something I really, really need to work on.  It's only when I'm very angry that I...

    It's Rare to Get Me This Mad Though..

    When I get furious.. seeing red, cussing up a storm furious... my first reaction? Grab something and hurl it at something else. Preferably something alive. I remember one time where I was seriously pissed off, I took a pen and threw it at my stepbrother. Well, he just laughed...

    My Bad Temper

    I hate to admit this but it's true.  When I get really mad at my boyfriend, I throw thing - usually the telephone - maybe throw a picture on the ground.....whatever is closest when he says something that just eats away at me.  I have always been this way.  For me...

    Can I Throw Your Things?

    The last thing I threw is the computer's mouse. The connection has been really slow these last couple of days. Grrrhhh. Back in the days, I have thrown rocks,  books and everyone's favorite, pillows. I've got a terrible temper, quite a short fuse. But it was when I...

    Have to Be Very Very Mad Though

    It takes a lot but when very mad or frustrated, I do tend to throw things against the nearest wall, usually the book that I am working out of at that moment, particularly if hard back or a mug, tend to show just enough constraint not to throw small children or animals.

    Latest Victim - Leather Ottoman

    I'm usually well tempered,  and don't often throw things.  However, I have to work pretty hard at it.  I use to be awful as a kid - starting out by self harming and moving on  to  destroying my room in frustration.  Time, work, and patience have allowed me to work on this...

    However...

    I have to say that I've been a very good girl and have really only thrown one thing in the past like, 9 years.  Before that, however, when I lived with my parents, I was a regular repeat offender.  I was throwing things more like every couple of months. But, for the...

    And It Takes a Lot to Get Me This Mad....

    but yea, i think its more frustration than anger that makes me do this.  Extreme frustration (no, not of the sexual kind you pervs).  The last thing i threw was a bag of sugar into the corner where the door is for the basement stairs.  Made one hell of a mess...

    I Held My Parents Responsible

    When I was a teenager I have this temper and would throw things when I get angry. I always feel awful afterwards. Feeling sorry for myself. I hated myself for this. I don't want anybody getting hurt and at same time I want people to know I can't help myself. It feels like I want...

    It's too hard. If I'm mad at you I can be mad for a couple of weeks and not remember why I was mad, I would just remember I was mad. I can't let things go at all.
