Have you ever wanted to have a tantrum…


You know, most days I am always cool, calm  and collected, but then there are some days that I really feel like having a rip-roaring tantrum and actually bashing my fists into something or even better, someone…but now I don’t do it because I seem to be unable to show anger.  Inside there is a volcano erupting and bashing the insides of my skull, whilst I remain outwardly cool. Surely this is not right?  You may want to know the reason for my anger, but now of course I can’t tell it here.

Sorry about my little blog outburst but there isn’t anyone around me who will actually understand…and I also don’t know anyone who would actually have the time to listen to me unless I go and pay a shrink 😦

  1. Oh yes! Blogging IS therapy, isn’t it? 🙂 Maybe time for a run? I find doing something physical helps to channel that energy. My inner therapist says that anger is a normal emotion – though you don’t necessarily have to rant and shout, feeling it is important… so that you can let it go.

  2. I think every human can relate to your experience. While I find writing about it therapeutic, I know that only praying about it would definitely & permanently removed the scars…

  3. I am also not a person who shows anger, as I am rather calm. I can get angry but it happens seldom and I don’t usually swear either. you get angry when something happens, but you cannot change the situation , so it is better to think about it and think of a solution, instead of having a tantrum. They don’t solve anything, if then they make the situation worse. So write a letter, but do not send it or write it in your journal . Later you will be glad you did and didn’t make more fuss. So blogging is therapeutic really. You can always tell us anything, Michelle!

  4. Invest in one of those boxing bags – it feels nothing, and you get to out every single frustration on it without anybody being the wiser.
    Hope the offender stays away…

  5. Hi Hope, I know how you feel. If you want to email me privately, I’d be glad to read about why you are angry. I’m not nosy, but I am a great listener.

    Since you don’t know much about me, it might be like going to confession in an unfamiliar church, across the world. I have heard it all and I don’t judge. I have an open heart and an ear to listen.

    Cheers and *hugs*

  6. I really don’t enjoy feeling angry, but sometimes I just can’t help it, and then I feel awful afterwards. Thankfully it only happens once in a blue moon. Hope you’re feeling calmer by now, Hopestar. Hugs

  7. I think having the occasional tantrum does one a lot of good. Bashing a pillow quite ruthlessly can do the trick. When really mad, kick it as well. One feels loads better.

  8. Hope, I will give you this one: bookman232@yahoo.com
    I don’t check it all the time, so let me know in a comment if you decide to ever use it.
    I would be glad to listen and I would probably understand a lot more than you think. I don’t judge, so feel free. Sometimes, one person listening can make a huge difference.

  9. Oh boy, yes! However, ever since my second year at university (which is over 20 years ago now and saw some great yelling matches with my house mates), the tantrum never seems to come out. It would do me good, I think, to have a really good rip-roaring yell every once in a while!

  10. I know it so well, Hope, but I allow myself that’s who I am right now. I’m a HSP so don’t trigger me.. lol 😀
    I get my tantrums when I can’t deal with emotional stuff, it doesn’t have to do with me or my surroundings, but also things from the news where I can’t cope with, does affect me deeply and when I don’t write about it…. well, then starts trouble! Hope you’re feeling better today 🙂

  11. I like your heart’s openness to express even negative things about you. Tantrums are triggered by superficial things in the surroundings or news,but the real stuff is deeper inside our unconscious usually it is an unmet emotional need.

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
