Nowhere near. I get frustrated by stuff, but I'm generally pretty laid back.
tbh i usually just look at porn on tumblr while eating chinese food
what did you think would happen?
if I know you really well - hit you then panic at what I've just done
screech and scream
smash my fist down on things
Find a way to remove yourself from the cause of the anger, if even for a short while. Concentrate on breathing deeply and slowly and don't try to ignore the situation, but think deeply about your anger and the cause of your anger. Embrace it and nurture it so that it doesn't control you. It's very real, you cannot ignore it, but remember that your anger and the problem at hand are two entirely separate issues.
You cannot deal with the problem in a constructive way whilst angry, and be aware that the anger is separate to what's upset you. Think about previous situations where you have been this angry and try to remember how you felt the next day. You are not ignoring the problem, you are simply ensuring that you deal with it in the best way possible.
Find an empty space (toilet cubicle if need be) and breathe slowly and deeply. Concentrate on your breathing as you do it. Do this for 10-15 minutes, depending on how you feel.
and who was in there before you
then orchestrate an extremely intricate and long-term revenge plan.
I'm kidding of course, that's the old me.
go for a long walk
ponder, preferably on a windswet hilltop with a nice view
relax, go home
close the door and scream as it spins.
and how a year from now you wont even think of this moment.
poorly followed health and safety regulations that led to the death of your entire family at a Roller Disco?
and how a year from now you wont even think of this moment. Families come and go. You can always get a new one.
I know you probably won't do that but IT WORKS FOR ME
I have a few responses!
1) drink a lot!
2) cry uncontrollably for a while
3) get in the car, put on a good album loudly an go for a drive in the county which invariably sees me driving like a fucking idiot (lad)
4) scream and shout and yell and stomp about my flat
5) go for a long walk
6) meet up with a friend and rant and rave at them for a while till I calm down, then they give me a hug and then I start crying!
My year so far has seen a lot of the above behaviour! :(
I often get really irritable and snap at my bf. normally i just breathe, have a glass of water, breathe again, remember that everything is ok and apologise.
Cry if you want to. Go for a run/cycle.
There are better long term solutions but when you actually feel really angry, just do what works for you babes xx
Smash my guitar
Go for long walks
I now am still trying to read the individual pages which I have managed to get back into order.
we must all pass that challenge. somehow, we do
got a whole bundle of images from that novel in my head like memories
and by the end you're like "O GOOOOOODDDDDDDDDD WHEREFORE ART THOU GOD" and you scream at the sky and the sky does not say
and it just gets more intense after that
oddly enough I think I may have found that one of the easier bits to read. Though that may be because I often found myself fascinated with how Pynchon so effectively evokes confused and messed up minds and how they perceive the world in that novel.
Are you still reading Mason and Dixon by the way?
and you do tend to read it straight through in one wide-eyed sitting, sweat dripping, head shaking - it's both utterly compelling and emotionally draining beyond belief.
on the train someone asked me if it was a good book. i was in the middle of that bit. i could barely say anything. just like shook my head and said 'it's...very, VERY good'
and yeah of course i'm still on M&D. it's incredible. nearly finished part 1. best bit so far probably jenkin's ear. just fucking magnificent
I definitely prefer it to Vineland, even though I enjoyed that as I read it. I think his staggeringly well-researched massively detailed novels work better with the extra breathing space.
Helps that it's quite pleasant to be in the characters' company, too.
and, yeah, it brought a bit back that I'm finding very melancholy in retrospect in an abstract way (not to spoil too much for anyone reading, but be warned anyway -- with their sort of vacationing location).
I don't know if I'm ever going to re-read that novel, though I would quite like to. Partly cause my memories of it are quite hazy (which I guess is partly the point anyway, haha)
It was anger at my sister rather than the book and the book was the nearest thing to hand...
glad to hear you're progressing. which bit you at? i want to imagine what fresh pleasures you're about to encounter
but yeah. tommy p's been nice to you for an ENTIRE PART. the niceness ends here.
you just have to allow yourself to fly through the windscreen
suffice it to say that those 120 pages or however many it is are the finest I'll read
and everyone started arguing as usual and my mum stormed off halfway through and then she came back and we all drove home in silence
This is my answer to most things. It's very effective, especially if you actually make a point of just enjoying having a nice cup of tea and a sit down
It broke. I had to pay £90 to get it fixed and really angered my housemate. I learned my lesson.
and he put a big crack in it, sat back and looked at the crack and then started crying, it was pretty amazing to watch (it ok he no injured)
and then explode at a later point when no one expects it.
around in a dodgy part of town. Wait for someone to try to mug you, then beat the crap out of him to let out your frustration.
This then changes to jazz and I'm calm again. Once I've slept on it, almost anything I get annoyed about is gone.
Now I just kind of make a "grrrrrr" noise and instantly try and forget about things.
