    Don’t make me angry, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry…

    I get quiet when I get angry. If I am angry because the workload is totally unbalanced, I will try to do the job alone — until I finally have my thoughts in order. Then I find “Mr. Recliner Man” and let him know I need help. He will start helping. So, the anger evaporates.

    I do not slam things, or act out because that gets me nowhere.

    I get quiet and I quietly plan what I will do to get myself away from the situation. My big plan is to get away, or get that person out of my life. The last angry exchange I had was with my brother (when Mom died). That exchange will result in my not talking to him for the rest of our lives. I go my own way and get on with my happy life. —— Once the person, or place is no longer in my life, I let it go and get on with life.

    I’m terrible with anger. It is a flaw that I have had in the past. Nothing has personally angered me in quite some time though, so I can’t say if I have grown up or if it is still there. Leave me alone and let me go sleep/take a nap. Sleep tends to reset my mood. It fits kind of nice because anger drains my energy quick and makes me tired.

    I was a very angry young man; big for my age and with some repressed rage and increased endurance from a parent who would often cross the line between a punishment and abuse.

    So I could take a licking and still draw on a well of rage far deeper than most. I seriously hurt people, and myself, on a few occasions. I had to get control over it if I didn’t want to end up in juvie. I resorted to just getting the hell away from people that might be hurt and just rage out on whatever was around.

    An older fellow I met taught me about channeling the energy into things that were firstly not destructive to others, then not destructive to myself (I broke my hand a few times punching stuff that didn’t really care I was punching it), and then in time, positive things. I learned to hold that energy for a short time to accomplish some pending goal (some exercise, a difficult task I wasn’t particularly relishing for example); but holding onto it long-term only caused it to fester and grow malignant in me.

    Anger is an energy. Once generated, it has to be directed to some goal where it can be expended. If you don’t it will just rumble around inside of you, searing you from the inside out.

    The Marvel Superhero “Havok” is a good analogy.
