I know I use anger for protection and it has been scaring me lately. Sometimes I think I may go to far… Also it seems like people don’t take me seriously until I lose my cool. Example, I ask them not to treat me this way, multiple times calmly and nothing changes until I get so fed up and flip out… This not the person I want to be, and know that nobody likes that kind of person,. I think should should set clear boundaries about how I want to be treated and if they don’t respect that then probably don’t respect me or really care one way or the other so I think I should just drop those people right away instead of waiting for them to get me so upset that I lose my cool and then I become the bad guy when they were the ones upsetting me not respecting my do ctors. Still very hard when I get in these situations I still get angry but sooner or later I reflect on what happened and realize I could have handled it better.
