I am the type of person who doesn’t get angry very often, and will take a lot of flak without saying anything. The trouble is, I’m a bit like a pressure cooker and when I do go steam pours out of my ears. My filter goes completely and I say exactly how I feel and why.
Once I am spent, I am a crier. Which helps in so many ways. I think people are afraid of crying, like it is a weakness. It isn’t. Crying lets out those emotions we are too scared of showing to others. Mind you, I cry when I watch a sad film, happy film or if there is an R in the month.
I don’t like confrontation normally, this stems from being bullied as a child. Too many bad memories are associated with anger. Theirs not mine. I tend to draw back into my shell and not say anything rather than make a big deal out of it.
In the end, anger solves nothing.
