How Do You Vent Your Anger?

March 24, 2007 5:59pm CST
As of late I've been getting better at not getting mad at the little things like I used to, but sometimes it's kind of hard since there are just some things that set me off more than others. I was wondering how all of you "vent" you anger so that I could figure out ways that are healthy. As far as hurting people I would never do that, but sometimes I can say things bad without even thinking. Of course after that then I feel really bad. I would like to hear some positive feedback so I can prevent myself from saying things I shouldn't. All feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Hmm very nice topic. Even i do get angry with little things. Of late i am trying to get involved with things so that i wont get get irritated and get angry upon. When it comes to hurting people we dont really intend to do that, but out of the mad fit or anger we do say some things which may be hurting. Just give a break when u are angry or irritated with little things try to divert your concentration from that and you may be able to get out of that anger fit. What i mean to say is get yourself involved in some thing that you are intrested in and think of the latter when are feeling a bit comfortable, that way you might supress your anger. Wish this can help you a bit :-)

Often times I cry a lot and I write it on my journal. It helps me express the pain and the burden and eases the heaviness. Talking about it or sharing with others could be of help but just be careful in the kind of people that you share it with.

Thanks much for your feedback. I don't care what anyone says crying is completely healthy, and even if people don't admit it everyone does it. People that can openly express that are considered sensitive but I think that's a good thing!

Well I usually go to my bed and lay down on my face and scream in my pillow. If I don't do that I would take a shower to cool down. These actually work. :)

people around me knows when i'm really angry... i stop talking and just close my eyes. i'd stop talking because i won't want to hurt someone else's feelings because i might say words that i might regret saying. i'd take deep breathe and just relax. after sometime, i'd cool down and be able to think clearly.
