Re: ANGRY

So some of us feel guilty or bad about anrgry and some of us feel a bad about the aftermath, i always think it's interesting when people have different experiences! 

 

I personally often feel bad about being angry and it's taken me a while to learn that sometime's its reasonable to be upset or angry about something and it's what you do with that anger that could be okay or not okay

Re: ANGRY

So @N1ghtW1ng, @redhead, and @ClCl, just clarifying that you all feel guilty for feeling mad?

Re: ANGRY

Most of the time I feel guilty when I'm angry at someone (especially if it's towards one of my family members) because I think about how maybe I could've said it in a nicer way and not raise my voice to get my point across. 

 

But when I am angry because I am feeling stressed, I don't feel as guilty. And I think maybe it's because that burst of anger just happened and I don't feel like that was within my control...

Re: ANGRY

@N1ghtW1ng Ah yes. That reminds me of another benefit of anger. What happens after. When we get angry over small things and have a chance to look over it later, we do learn and perhaps strengthens our ability to handle it the next time it comes around. I don't know if it's true since I heard it somewhere but Julius Caesar had a 3 day cooldown after you wanted to get revenge on someone before you were allowed to legally take action. Hope someone can confirm.

Re: ANGRY

I agree @ryvb3 or I feel guilty about thinking negative things about them due to the anger. When I know I love them no matter what.

Re: ANGRY

@tsnyder I guess. It's more like I feel guilty for getting mad. The difference is probably non-existent, but it's like why'd I even get mad in the first place? Although personally, I don't think of it as mad. Mad to me feels more like a light anger. I feel guilty for getting mad and what I did while I was angry.

Now that I'm on my laptop, this is so much easier Smiley Tongue

Re: ANGRY

@RevzZ I hope that's a true fact, because if it is, it's very cool.

 

Well that's really interesting! I'd never considered feeling guilty over anger before (I guess we learn something new every day!).

Re: ANGRY
