This just might be the perfect topic for this site.

No matter what anyone thinks about politics, religion, morality, drugs, music, sex, or life in general, most people here have one huge trait in common; they are highly PISSED OFF.

music sex life general people huge trait common highly pissed

It doesn't matter what the topic of conversation is, you will find at least one member like this on practically every single post on this site;

Someone who is practically bristling for an argument with someone, anyone... just because 'they mad' and they feel the need to take it out on someone else... someone who can't see or touch them.

Now don't get me wrong; in this day and age, there is plenty to be angry about. Injustices, atrocities and a continual attack on
basic human dignity and respect can be witnessed pretty much anywhere one looks, at any time.

Some things are actually worth being mad about.

righteous anger

However, letting that anger consume you completely is never wise.

It clouds one's ability to think rationally, and tends to lead to making rash decisions that may be regrettable, once a person has had a chance to calm down.

'Impotent rage' is also not very healthy for one's body, potentially leading to various physical maladies such as heart disease, and high blood pressure.

And I don't know about anyone else, but it doesn't feel very good either.

Personally, I don't enjoy being the sensation of being angry; the heat, the agitated flutters in my stomach, and worst of all the fear - fear that my anger will overwhelm me and lead me to do something irreparable.

I ardently endeavor to avoid people, places and things that incite such vexation; but as we all know, that's not always easy, or possible... especially when there are certain individuals who seem to thrive on aggravating others.

In fact, people like that often seem to
not only enjoy antagonizing others, but they seem to really revel in being mad themselves.

you mad trollface

That really makes me wonder;

Can anger actually be addictive?
What are your thoughts?


Now please note:

This question is in the LIVING section for a reason.

Just because the topic is about 'being angry' does NOT mean that its a venue for anyone to vent about whatever or whomever it is that has pissed them off.

Check all your political, religious and incendiary rhetoric at the door, there are numerous other forums where your pique is welcome.

This isn't one of them.

Be civil, or be blocked. Period.

    Luckily, those moments are few and far between.

    Why do people have to be so mean?

    I used to be. When I was in elementary school

    Now i unfortunately do not get angry as much, people either do not mess with me, or there is really nothing to get mad at.

    You'd have to actually have feelings, first.

    But if, by some minute chance I did, then... good.

    I have issues and I will be the first to admit it. Anger is one of them. I guess growing up like I did and having to deal with so many difficult situations, I am probably "damaged". Having said that, I am willing to bet there are a whole lot of "damaged" individuals floating around. Really I never set out to get enraged and go off. Some days I let stuff slide, some days I am standing behind some yahoo at wally world, who is yacking on their phone, while the cashier is waiting to count out their change. Suddenly the inconsiderate person causes me to see red and I WILL say something. I mean I think walmart has someone watching me every time I walk through the door. Not so long ago a guy revved his engine while me and about 5 other elderly people were in the cross walk at wally world. Know what I did? Followed his fat ass through the parking lot, walked on over, took pictures of his truck, trailer and plates and then turned him into management. The guy confronted me and asked me if I was asking for trouble and I told him no, but that he was. My son gets upset when I do stuff like this and says I am gonna be killed one day. I cannot help myself, I seem to have no control when I feel like some one has done me wrong. I have been told I have a strong sense of injustment, and perhaps I do because so much injustment has been done to me.

    My husband is so easy going. Course he might gripe to me about something but he never says anything to other people. Me on the other hand.....well totally opposite.

    He very seldom gets mad angry with me, he usually just vents to be about how other people have made him angry, but he won't tell them. When he does get mad at me its lecture time BIG time, which I hate.

    hahaha..............Gave all that up years ago. I figured if the first 100 sessions did not help, I was probably wasting my money. And for the record I am not offended. I happen to be straight forward and honest myself, some people like it, some don't.
