You are pissed off.
Like pissed off at everyone and everything. It’s like you are a ball of frayed nerves and the slightest thing just ticks you off.
You can see that it is not rational to be so angry and fly off the handle, but you can’t seem to stop it. No matter how many deep breaths you take, or how many talks you have with yourself to just calm the hell down.
Anger is a core piece of survival responses in humans. It helps us to cope with stress by giving us the energy to keep going in the face of trouble. In fact, anger can be a sign of healing.
But it can create MAJOR problems in your personal life and push loved-ones away. Especially when it is your go-to emotion.
