my temper... - January 2nd 2012, 08:39 PM

Not really sure if this is in the right section but anyways..
so i hav a really bad temper, especially around my family. pretty much anywhere else ive been able to control it to a degree, but i always get in big trouble with my parents because itll start off with a small thing and then escalate. It doesn't help that both my parents hav bad tempers too and get mad easily like me, so i cant really go to them. I've really tried to manage it but there are a lot of times when i dont kno what else to do. any advice would be much appreciated.

Live. Laugh. Love.

Re: my temper... - January 3rd 2012, 02:49 AM

I have been in similar situations where I have been so mad and angry that I cant control my anger. What helps me is you can always take a timeout: counting to 10 isn't just for kids and alot of times this will help. Once you are calm, express your anger - and think before you speak. After you express your anger - identify the possible solutions that can resolve this issue. Once this is all done - and the situation is calmer, don't hold a grudge and maybe using humor to lessen the tension may help.

I would also recommend looking up online some relaxation skills that you can practice.

If your temper and anger is running your life - then its time to seek help from a trained professional. I know it may sound stupid, but they will be able to help you way more than you can even believe. So if it gets to that point - its time to seek and get help.

I hope this helped alittle.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
