Parent Style leading to emotional neglect and anger

The root of anger is hard to pinpoint, all I know is that I feel angry but I don't know why. As a child, I was angry, as a result of pent up emotional energy, an inability to express needs, take care of own emotional needs. I did not feel comfortable with my emotions, my needs, I felt like I should hide them. The result was anger, frustration, poor behaviour.

The anger was triggered by ...

Random Outbursts

I'm not a very angry person day to day, but I have odd outbursts where I get very angry for little to no reason. For instance, I woke up this morning was perfectly calm, stepped out of bed and put 3 holes in my wall then right after I was completely calm again. This is something that happens 1 to 3 times a week, it's been a concern recently because recently it's becoming more common. ...

Angry friend. But why????


I'm not sure if this is the right board to post but hoping this would be the place to shed some light/help with what my best friend and I have gone through. I'm baffled, hurt and angry at how things have gone down and just don't know and can't understand why he has acted like he did. But here's the bones of it below:

So, the background is that we have been best friends ...

I've realized the root of my anger

this is probably not much a light bulb moment to others who have discovered this already, but for me it was a big sobering realization. I often thought that others actions, quirks, comments, character traits, etc were what was causing my anger. That it was OTHER's fault that was triggering me.

BUT- I've come to realize that ultimately I'm furious with life in general because I"M just not happy. I think I'm in a deep ...

I need anger management.

I wrote some words on another forum that had to be edited by a moderator, rightfully so. I was discussing bad choices I might make because of my anger. That is, actions I might take in not dealing with my anger proactively, but rather letting it bubble to the surface unintentionally. :evil:

Anger is energy. It must be harnessed for good & channeled positively. ...

Road Rage

Has anyone else stopped driving due to their own anxiety and road rage? Lately I have not been driving as much as I used to unless it’s a doctor or therapy appointment. It’s because I have horrible road rage and I’m scared I’m going to get myself into an accident. I don’t feel I can control myself when on the road. It’s obviously not possible to say I’ll never drive again but I wish I ...

Personality Disorder/Mental Illness Need a Solution

My father is suffering from some form of mental illness. It has never officially been diagnosed, but from his behaviour there is no doubt in my mind that he is not well.

He is a very angry person, and hardly a day passes by when he doesn't lash out over something. And the way he is and speaks is very self-centered. He constantly gets upset over people disrespecting him. The most important thing in his ...

ACT - Expanding emotions - Anger

My therapist has recommended Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and suggested I read The Happiness Trap. The book advises that rather than constrict emotions, you should expand them. To do this it talks about focusing on one emotion that you are feeling, "breathing" into that emotion, giving it as much space in you as it wants, and accepting it as just the sensation that it is. It says you shouldn't judge the emotion at all, ...
