Hmmm...I think you should ask yourself more questions about what someone does to piss you off? Why does that piss you off? What type of message does that convey to you when they say or do that that causes you to feel pissed off? Have loved ones ever not kept their promises to you before? Basically, you've gotta dig deep and figure out exactly what the emotional triggers are for you and why. That way you can better understand yourself and how you would like to react to the other person's comments or behaviors.

I have the same exact problem. Only difference is I NEVER say anything about to anyone. I keep it bottled up inside. I think about it so much that I have these outbursts just so I can stop thinking about them. I find myself at any time of the day screaming or cussing at the air just so I can stop thinking about it.

I just don't think you're the laid back kind of guy that lets things pass. It's not a problem it's a personality trait.
