Overall, I’d have to say I’m a pretty mellow person. I just don’t tend to let things get to me the way that many people do. However, as I am getting older, I seem to be getting more and more in touch with my anger, which is probably a good thing, as when I was a kid, I would NEVER get angry and I would just let things eat away at me from the inside, and then I would inevitably just end up crying over stupid little things. These days, I do get angry, and fairly often at that!
I have found that I have what I think might be an abnormally low tolerance for incompetence and inefficiency, and sadly, I seem to encounter so much of it every day! I’m honestly not sure how some people have manged to remain alive as long as they have, without having someone around to remind them to keep breathing. How have they managed to remain alive without someone choking them in a fit of rage? I just don’t understand…
While I don’t go as far as to choke anyone (as much as I would sometimes like to), I do try to get the anger out instead of letting it fester. Normally, I find someone to vent to and I turn into George Constanza, my voice going up an octive and waiving my hands wildly as I speak.
Are you in touch with your rage? What really gets you going?
If you’ve lived under a rock your whole life and didn’t get the George Costanza reference, see below:
