I was very angry for some time, I was ill and in pain from it, and miserable the whole time. When the anger left so did most of the health issues.

I still get angry at least twice a week, I hulk out and destroy shit, but I'm working on that.  Chuckle Sometimes slamming hard boiled eggs at the kitchen walls make me feel better.

What is with destroying things?  I was once married to a woman who threw plates, cups and saucers at me.  Thank goodness she left the knives at home.

I don't throw things at anyone, I'm not violent like that. I throw things at walls or out the door. When I get mad I have a great need to destroy. I wouldn't assault the hubby or the kids obviously.

I have a big oscillating stand fan that I threw 6 years ago..across the house, through a few rooms, my aim was good that day, it flew through the doorways and never hit a wall. The fan still worked until last week, slapped some duct tape on it to hold it together and it held up all these years.  Chuckle

Hey I know, when I was in my 20's I had a terrible temper. I would yank telephones off of a wall mid-call and throw it. I once threw a typewriter through a plate glass window between two studios, I was pissed.

I worked in corporate business. When we had meetings, I would pitch a fit when someone wanted to expand their budget. People at the meeting were freaked out. But, it kept them from asking for more money. Lots of yelling and cussing. once I jumped up in the middle of the conference room table.

This is called using anger as a tool to sway people opinions. Chuckle

I once bought a trolley full of food for a family as they had been kind enough to put us up while we were relocating. Unfortunately, the husband was triggered by what I provided for the family and when his wife and I prepared the dinner for all nine of us, he got up and threw the roast dinner across the dinner table. A terrible thing for children to witness, especially when they loved yours truly.

He has since had a 'stroke'.
Liberate the power of love within and it is so powerful, it is a key to life.  It requires those that have already liberated their love to help others to do so. Love is on the Braine train, legally, scientifically and peacefully. Fast, strong and built to last, whatever your cast. The patriots sing we are kin, and the new UKIP leader has the name of a king, so KTF!   Yeah3

Perhaps the most pissed I have been (recently) was in 2014. I had noticed my 120 year old walnut tree was brushing against the power lines and during the month of January of that year the local REA would send a crew out to trim the trees.

So, wanting to be a good steward of my electrical services, I called and arranged to have them come out and trim this tree. I mentioned that the few branches they need to trim just leave them on the ground and I will take care of them.

When I got off work and came home after they were supposed to trim my tree branches I drove up to my lawn and to my horror THEY CUT THE WHOLE F#CKING TREE DOWN AND LEFT IT LAYING IN MY YARD! I flew into an absolute rage that actually scared me!!! I wanted to tear out the walls on my house I was so pissed! I didn't even sleep that night I was so damn mad, and in fact, it pisses me off to this day even thinking about it!

Yeah, now I'm pissed again, I should of never clicked on this thread, Goddamn it! So, the next day I called the REA up and literally ripped a strip of hide off those bastards. They tried to tell me I had told them to cut it down and that enraged me all the worst! I finally got ahold of an "authority" figure and asked his name and where he lived and informed him I have a f#cking chain saw and will travel and how would he like one of his trees felled laying in his lawn when he came back from work today. He said he wouldn't like that at all!!!! So, I told him I don't f#cking like it myself!!

When I do get really, really pissed the pupils in my eyes turn jet black, why, I have no clue, so when I got off the phone I looked in the mirror and YEP, I was pissed! That freaks people out who are around me when that happens!

When I get mad I often feel inmediate pressure on my neck. Like a huge hand is grabbing me. When I get sad, I feel nothing but sorrow. Both are negative but I concord with the research. Getting angry has inmediate effects.
Many things happen in life that teach you to become stronger, wiser, gentler. Life is a good teacher.

Crying is healthy for you it helps to release toxins from the eyes and the head.

Although when I asked the LORD about the eyes, he recommended an eye wash. I was working on health for prevention at the time. As I don't plan on having any eye operations, so doing what I can for prevention.

It makes me wonder how much radiation comes from the computers that impacts on our eyes.

Crying helps physically by disrupting the stress hormone bath every cell in your body is taking when enraged, grieving, etc. Prolonged cellular exposure to stress hormones = damage to internal organs.

I can't help suspecting that as men are taught to never cry, they're put at higher risk for stress-related health problems. Could explain the higher rates of heart attack and stroke in men. I always said woman lives longer than man because she doesn't have to live with another woman. Chuckle It's quite possible that one of the reasons she lives longer is because it's always OK-and even expected- for her to cry.
The storm approaches, with fury destined to be unleashed.
