You ask me what is anger? Look at me. Here I am in a psychiatric clinic confessing my issues to a person that gets paid to tell me that I am crazy. I want you to listen to me. Listen to me with an open mind. I do not need your judgement. Listen to these words with understanding. Put yourself in my neglected, hurt, and troubled shoes and listen.

Anger is waking up every morning still thinking about that bad thing that happened to you all those years ago. You know, when your bestfriend kissed your boyfriend in eleventh grade and she told you it was no big deal. Anger is scolding your child because he “bothered” you by asking to tie his shoes.

I have nothing good in my life. I am mad all the time. I am angry because I am alone. But honestly, the reason I am alone is anger. Anger took everything away from me: my child, sanity, and life.

I do not have it. I cannot keep a job. Employers do not like people that don’t smile. Employers don’t like passive aggressive people. No one wants to give me a job. Anger is a barrier.
Anger is not happiness. Frowns are my best asset. I also make unpleasant faces. Like the “Resting B***h Face”. I am not positive. Anger is not optimistic. I don’t see the good in people. I hate everything. I don’t want to be bothered. No, I don’t want to talk because no one knows what to say. I am not happy, I won’t ever be like you. I won’t have a spouse to turn to. Because every time if he breathes to hard, I’m most likely going to spazz out. No one wants a loose cannon. An angry person is like a ticking bomb. One wrong move, and everything goes up in
