Thread Name: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Subject: RE: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
No, I rarely lose my temper. My mum went through a very heavy binge drinking phase for several years, during that time I had to deal with her aggressive abusive behaviour - as she would totally change when drunk into this abusive raging harpy. I learned to shut out verbal aggression from simply enduring her in her cups. If someone angers me now, I just shut them out completely, I'd rather literally turn my back on someone than engage in a squabble with them.
I must confess however that I think my anger is pretty repressed anyway, ever since my childhood. I hate losing control when it happens. Which is what I think you're getting at. The only time I remember really losing my temper, I punched my father in the head several times - he was pretty good about it and soaked it up though bless him!
