    Mark Twain: Let go of anger: “Anger is an

    acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” Anger is most of the time pretty pointless. It can cause situations to get out of hand. And from a selfish perspective it often more hurtful for the one being angry then...

    I let myself get angry

    and even try to get angry. I'm not angry all the time. And I'm in control enough not to flip out over something stupid. I harness the power of anger, it does not control me. I am not it's vessel for which it can come into being. It is my tool for which I find strength, power...

    My Ways

    1. I self injure 2. Think really nasty thoughts about the person that angered me. 3. Send snarky txts to my friends about the person that has angered me. NOTE: Number 2 & 3 are usually only concerning my friend K Laugh and how much I want to strangle him. Or bad drivers...

    Last year, my 'friends' betrayed me terribly

    and hurt me so much. They spread rumours at school and were always looking to pick a fight (though it mostly consisted of shouting abuse at me) and began to turn the few friends I had left again. Only two were left from my original group (twins) and though I have fought...

    1. Run (outdoors, or in a treadmill if the weather is bad) as far as you can.. 2. Punching bag.. 3. Scream therapy works - if there is no one in a 5 mile radius :) (alternatively type AAAAAHHHHH in bold capitals size 20 font!) 4. And of course EP therapy :)

    It's mostly things that people say that **** me off so much steam could be spouting out my ears. I usually just get on my bike and ride long and hard to the farthest place I can think of, then when I get there I'm usually cooled down and I enjoy a slow breezy ride back home. It...

    I let it stew for a while,

    and then I let go of it. I can't hold onto anger because I don't want it to affect my health and well being.

    Virtual Violence

    Generally for me, violent video games are one of my best anger/stress relievers and reducers. If I'm mad I'll sit down in front of the computer and play CounterStrike, and after an hour or so of blowing virtual people into millions of little pixels of blood I am a lot more calm...

    I like to put on some kind of either very poppy music that you can't help singing along to or music that's really loud and fast and angry.

    A friend suggested I throw ice cubes

    as at a wall. I ran out of ice cubes and my bicep hurt for days afterward. I also beat my pillow senseless. Bothe biceps equally wrecked, lol.

    Why do I get so upset?

    I just want to be able to voice my point without raising my voice or saying something mean. I feel like my points are valid but my delivery is over the top. Does anyone have this problem and find a way to deal with it in a healthy way?

    When I was a child I used to release my anger by cutting up clothes, and wrecking things. When I was a teen I would lock myself in my room and get my rage out by throwing things around or ripping up pictures of the person that I am angry with. Now, I just listen to my music on my...

    and regret it afterwards. Some delete it and some don't. its not worth it to post or speak in anger, because words that are spoken can't be deleted again. I have done it . I admit. and with these words I have hurt someone who means the world to me. someone who I love more...

    How do I release my anger? I spend money on adult webcams. It's costly but it works to release the angry guilt that's almost overflowing like lava rushing over a volcano. It's not as bad as cutting, drugs or alcohol but it's still probably not a good way to go about things. I...

    Letting Go

    I either put on some music or a take a long walk. Both calm me down. If it's a person you have to confront, waiting until you have a clear head is usually best.

    Most of my anger gets released in 2 ways.

    1) writing. I write poems/lyrics that get everything out and it can be very therapeutic. 2) I hit the gym for a crazy solid workout.
