    That's frustration more than anger. Your personality and the way you rationalize life will determine how intense and often you get angry. It's healthy to acknowledge your anger, then release it in a positive manner.

    Anger turned inward is depression, anger turned outward is violence and anger turned sideways is a motivating force.

    indeed - a motivating force.

    My anger can carry inertia. Like the other week; I was goingto school - something happened, I was boiling mad and trying to calm down which wasn't working. I should have stopped driving but I did not - no - no such maturity here. A few minutes down the road my necklace got on my nerve. My over the top showpiece of a necklace - bronze and a whole host of classy gems - the damn thing pissed me off even more. It took me 2 weeks to make the sucker - and in one quick second I ripped it off my neck and tossed it out the window.

    It was like instant ice - I realized that eventhough I've managed to cap my temper around the kids and my husband I still have a long way to go.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Depends on what I'm upset about, but usually my first reaction it to get quiet. Steel myself, swallow it, walk away if possible, listen to the person making me upset. I do all these things while I try to process how or if I do anything about it.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Internally pissed off, sometimes it shows a bit in my comments to people, where I am being short. I don't like to yell, so that's not me. Usually, I internally stew about it until I find someone or somewhat to vent.

    I'd not say that my "anger reaction" is "mental health textbook".
    Its not ......but at least its not criminal (most of the time).
    We, as Americans and as men, must work on this...as must all of us...
    Real gun control helps....to an extent.

    Gun control doesn't help, it just reduces the number of outlets for expression.
