Rage is unhealthy and toxic. It can turn your hair prematurely grey and can cause ulcers. Anger also has a direct link to anxiety and depression. That's why we have to be careful about what causes raging outbursts. Going into a state of anger over any little thing is not the way to get through a day. It only leads to more chaos, but sometimes chaos, is unavoidable.

Redditor u/Cumconsumer12 wanted everyone to share about the things that can make one fly on the handle by asking... What makes you really angry?

I have a short fuse. I really do. For too many years it has lead to a lot of undo stress and trouble. I try deep breathes now. And prayer. But I nearly pass out from all the breathing and my mouth is dry from reciting scripture. I have issues. Anything can set me off. I could make my own personal reddit thread. But... I'm clearly not alone.

Bullies

Horrible people who go into professions working with vulnerable people. Like, a bully going into social work or nursing, or abusive people going into youth care. Nothing pisses me off more than that.

MOVE!!

Being stuck behind a trio of slow walkers taking up the whole sidewalk.

Sometimes, depending on the width of where you're walking, it could just be 1 person and they are so evenly in the middle that you can't pass them on either side. It's infuriating. Like, HELL, make the minimal effort to move ever so slightly one way or the other.

Me Time

Having no free time.

My previous employer would send me appointments at 10pm for the next day.

I made it a rule to never EVER respond to emails past 5pm, even if I had a mail I wanted to send I would schedule it for delivery the next day.

Buy_More_Bitcoin

Yeah I have a rule about being talked to while on the clock. If it's not important enough to tell me while you're paying me then it's not important.

Beware of Others

Inside Out Reaction GIF by Disney Pixar Giphy

People who are just oblivious in public. You are not the center of the universe, other people exist around you, stop being an a**.

And stand in the middle of the aisle leaning on their cart texting with one finger.

People who drive up my butt in the mother freaking slow lane. Wtf.

KittenReigns

I hate when they do that when there is a passing lane and clearly they aren't trying to get to a turn. I could get if you can't pass me because of a turn (whether regular road where you are about to get to an entrance, or highway/interstate and off ramp) but WTF are you driving up my @ss when there is an empty lane beside you and you can go around me.

All of those things! ALL OF THOSE THINGS! I hate them all. How could you not? I'm angry just from reading. LOLOL. Let me pause for a breath and a prayer. Continue without me for a moment.

Line cutters.

Line cutters should be about a head shorter.

Missing Pieces

When you order takeout/delivery and you get home and the food is wrong. Ruins the whole meal for me.

graypumpkins

Dude. This. I swear to god, if I splurge and get delivery and it's missing hoisin for my mu sushi it's honestly like momentarily devastating.

I bought some as a back-up and always leave a polite note saying I'd like sauce packets, but it still happens and is such a bummer. I usually only order food when it's been a rough/stressful day, so missing sauce is just like an extra kick in the shins.

Sorry, I apparently feel really strongly about this lol.

Idiots!

It's Pretend

People sending death threats to actors because of a role they played.

its_rupony5

Wtf. Really?

I studied acting in college and played a major douchebag in a play once. I played carter in Neil Labute's "Fat Pig." I talked with some girl several days after performances ended and she said she had a friend who wanted to talk to me but didn't because she thought I might be an butthole. So I kinda get that some people don't understand that actors aren't their characters, but sending death threats seems almost unbelievable.

Trashed

People who casually throw trash out their car window.

iBelieveInSpace

Same.

One time while I was in the car with my family, there was a daycare van driving in front of us on the highway and the passenger threw trash out, so my dad called the daycare phone number. Glad he did!

Stay Calm

Angry Season 4 GIF by The Office Giphy

When someone "apologizes," but starts of with I'm sorry YOU don't like/didn't hear/felt as if/etc. If you're going to apologize freaking own it. Get out of here with that passive aggressive bullcrap.

Chatroombacklog

This entire thread has given me anxiety and makes me thankful for alcohol. I don't know why anything here would be deemed irrational; or maybe it's time I head back to therapy. Pray for me, and the world at large that has to encounter me.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
