No I don't.
Getting angry is an emotion I avoid. I might get upset, but never allow myself to get so negative and lose control that anger seeps in.

I talk it out, vent, work through it, compromise, negotiate, and do positive confrontation...whatever it takes to come to a positive and supportive understanding

i used to....but my husband has chilled me out..mostly because the way i have to handle an argument with him...if i dont keep my cool it will escelate too much...also working in customer service for ins company helps to...i have to keep my voice leve to prevent escelation....i was actually very proud of myself yesterday when i had a caller that kept turning my words around and trying to trip me up..i did nto raise my voice but my face was hot and my cheeks red.....the funny thing is that now i sometimes get accused of not caring by my spouse....kinda funny cause i do, i just dont want to explode...oh well

I try not to. Depending on the day, I occasionally have a short fuse, but luckily those are very RARE days! My hubby is amazed how I can shrug things off sometimes & just go on. I'm a good balance for his temper I guess. emoticon

I have a long fuse with everything BUT my husband. Sometimes all I have to do is look at him and I get angry. Otherwise I'm pretty even keeled.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I would have to say I get mad on a situational basis...It's just certain times and certain things that push my buttons. (i.e.)-If someone hassles my children. Now that makes me pretty mad. But other than that, I pretty much overlook things.

I do when I get slandered or called names or my loved ones do. I think it is because of my abusive childhood. That saying sticks and stones may break my bones but names would never hurt me is a lie. Some say they only hurt if they are the truth that is also a lie. I am assuming that the truth does hit harder so I always hit back with the truth. I am learning to walk away that people who do things like that just are bored and have no life and need to feed the demons within themselves.

I get MAD WAY too easily right now.

ONE person INPARTICULAR pushes my buttons. Right now....Don't be talking BAD about MY DAD. I went off the other night on this person about it. BTW the person.....GARY.

Once I get RID of him I will not get mad so easily. Out here I don't when I do not have to talk to HIM.

Blessed are those who bring out the BEAUTY in others!!

You are blessed if you understand that VERY LITTLE is needed to make life happy.

LOVE is a blessing that comes from the HEART.

ENCOURAGEMENT is a blessing of HOPE.

Being wth those you LOVE is a BLESSING!!

Blessings come from sharing HAPPINESS.

Live well, laugh often, and bless each day.

I used to get mad at the drop of a dime. I the worst temper and attitude. Believe or not working with the public changed all that. Now it takes a lot to get me mad. Even if I do get mad I don't yell or scream, I calmly pull the person to the side and let them know why I am mad with them.

Nope, not at all. And if I do get mad, it goes away quickly because I prefer not to fester in negativity...

Yes, but almost only on the road when other drivers are oblivious to things around them or do stupid and dangerous things.

the older I get the quicker my temper is....I don't know why......I'm also getting stressed out so much more quickly than I used to.
The one thing I havent lost is my patience, thank goodness!

Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh no,
So don't you bring me down today...

This would be directly preportional to the stupidity of the person I am dealing with. Generally, I have a very long fuse, but there are certain people who have been setting me off more easily as of late

I'm slow to anger and when I do get angry, it's over in a flash! I've always felt anger uses too much of my energy!

I rarely get angry....It's usually a waste of my valuable time! Things that would have po'd me when I was young, I find rather humorous now. emoticon

These days I have a lot more patience. It takes a long time for me to get mad, long enough so I can start recognize me getting mad and do something about it before I lose it. This has helped time and again.

I try very hard to control my anger, It is weird, if I keep it under control for the first 5 or 10 seconds I am able to get over it and move on.

It takes a lot to get me fired up, but when I do get mad you better watch out.
