Is it better to be constantly angry, or to bottle it up and release it at regular intervals?
till you're not any more.
you're ALWAYS angry?
I think because the stress of ALWAYS being angry would bring on an early heart attack.
hella expensive though.
It's part of my job...
Is that an option?
things must irk you into a fearsome rage, surely? What if someone ate your pie?
to eat my pie. Believe. My pie is sacred.
still. tesco value chicken and vegetable pies > most food.
to have a wank.
anger is an enerjaaaaay
You can hold onto negative energy and it can cause you an ulcer, a heart attack, a nasty outlook on life overall...
Best to let go of emotions like that in some way - but not towards others if not necessary - take up kick boxing, or something like that - scream in an empty field... shite like that... go running.. etc...
i feel like the arse-end of a badger for not getting enough sleep and i hence hate the hot weather. But i can't take it out on weather...can i?
it wasn't that interesting, hence me avoiding it.
shallow and pedantic!
peter decides hes a genius, and repeats the phrase "shallow and pedantic" to describe everything. i was commenting on my reversal thing being equally as stupid.
You win second prize (after Prole) for speaking in a private code of references.
after all, own it on video and dvd now. unless they've stopped video.
I agree... but just being angry and staying angry is not good... hence doing something with it... (my point above was physical but it can also push you to do things you wouldn't normally do - I have tried it before).. Same with sadness.. that has worked for me - when very sad, I've done some of the most amazing things for myself that I've ever done before. Wierd irony.
I have no idea how to do this though, as I rarely get angry
I am guessing that nobody here's concerns are quite going to require the storming of the houses of parliament.
I've found anger to be something that just causes flash reactions that then cause more trouble. Anger in everyday life just seems to bring on irrational knee-jerk responses and burns out quickly, leaving more trouble than there was before. I reckon more important than 'using' anger, is to be able to absorb or diffuse angry responses. Like in your exampe, it's difficult because teacher/student relationships have baggage and authority/experience issues etc.
That might sound pretty strange coming from me, being completely reactive and touchy as I am, but it's what I think. I don't think the propogation of angry emotions really helps anything. You know. Ghandi stuff.
I will see some of you later.
Toorah, toorah, whiskers on kittens etc..
Well. I guess what I'm getting at is a kind of premption of anger by accepting the possibilities of everything before they happen, and so when they do, there's more resignation or acceptance than surprise or anger. And that can give a real strong foundation on which to build.
I don't know if this is making much sense.
I don't mean to imply an abject acceptance of everything. But I do think that being angry about something is often nowhere near as effective as thinking through it and actually attempting some kind of resolution.
This doesn't sound very exciting does it.
Anger is exciting I suppose. There are lots of films about fighting and revenge and war. But not that many about happiness and being calm.
although I'm the worst person to advise on this. I get angry so seldom that consequently:
1) sometimes people fuck me around because they think I never get upset about things
2) when I actually do get angry, it terrifies me so much that it ends up as panic.
So yeah, try get angry Thommo. With the right things/people though, I doubt it's really the weather you're angry at.
i just went to sleep instead, and have obviously got up just in time to see Dresden Dolls on tv...
But I look quite nice with makeup :(
