Hello, Depending on what angers me and how bad the situation is, I guess yelling would be my downfall!...How it affects people around me?...Put it this way...I can CLEAR a room!...hehe...To control the anger, would be best for all, if I WALKED away, thought about the situation, then address it, when I am completely calm!...Anger management has taught me how to deal with my anger...Counting, breathing in a bag, even bashing the phone book!...But the best medicine for me...Talking to my friend Laura...She can help me see both sides of an incident...Sometimes I explode and other times I wait!

I got an bad temper. Whenever i got furious, i got to be alone if people come and cool me down, i will shouted to them. I will keep myself alone or listen to music to calm down my anger after that thing will be normal again. I do admit that somehow my boyfriend will leave me because of my temper and attitude which he could not tolerate. Luckily, i have a very understanding parent and friend, thanks so much! just because of them caring and concern i promise that i must control my temper more.

I have never yelled at someone, even if I am too much disappointed. I just try to distant myself, until I cool down. When I feel bad... I just keep silent... think things over, if I have done wrong also. I don't want to yell and hurt other people's feelings. I don't really get angry, I just feel bad with the things that don't go right... I don't want to yell...because I know it doesn't feel good being yelled at...

When I get angry, I used to go outside and start doing heavy work. Like chopping wood, breaking something down what needs to be broken down, and this kind of stuff. I don't like yelling, because it attracts people, and they'll look up weird to you, and that's nothing for me. I did it once, and it just made me feel stupid. When I was younger, I used to keep all the anger in me, and I started then to get very very angry in my mind, which wasn't good ofcourse! I was really considering killing people, or hurt people, to get the anger out of me, what ofcourse were terrible thoughts. Now I don't have that anymore fortunately! I just go working and working, until all of my anger is gone, and then I will speak with the person who I was angry with, and sort it out.

I start to shake all over then I cry and I feel my face become numb. I try to breath (which I forget) when I'm angry. I also need to leave the place,or person to have change of environment fast. I have to share it with someone since it always shows when I'm mad coz i start turning beet red. I try not to yell but when really provoked, at times, I give in.
