Lord give me strength! That is always a favorite of mine. When anger is taking over one's emotions the mouth tends to let loose. And in the past week I'm sure a lot of letting loose has been going on. We all have that one line... or five, that really encompass those special, singular moments of rage. These are the lines that let others know it's times to hide, children know to run and strangers often just cry. It's a signature line, that expresses emotion honestly and to perfection.

Redditor u/PCubiles wanted everyone to divulge what responses are like knee jerk reactions when their nerves are tested by asking.... What's your favorite thing to say when you're angry?

DISBELIEF!

In German. 

For some reason i say Jävlar which means something like damnit in Swedish, meanwhile I'm Norwegian. Validalo

I say Sheibe. Don't even know how to spell it. Probably not saying it right. Don't know any other German words but yup I say sh!t in German every single time. Not even when I'm mad. I swear in everyday conversation and I think I just used that to hide it so my slightly Puritan coworkers (some are old and some are devout church goers) don't get offended. They're pretty nice people and they don't shove their beliefs down my throat so I don't want to shove mine down theirs. Nestreeen

Anger Management!

"Ooh, this makes me very angry." I was thinking of Marvin The Martian lol. DumperDump69

I tend to get overly polite when angry. I had an argument with a family member on the phone recently and said "I am very angry and will be hanging up now, good day to you!" zhuzhy

Then I have demonic anger. 

I have two levels of angry I've learned. I have shut down/avoidance angry. I get quite, dismissive and try to avoid the confrontation.

Then I have demonic anger. Full blown seeing red mouth foaming angry. I don't hit that often but when I do I absolutely lose my sh!t. It's kinda scary honestly because I get so heated I feel like I'm going to explode. toolschism

Stubbing...

I normally don't swear much when angry but when I stub my toe or stuff, I say exactly the words: God f-ing damn it!! Holy Crap. sachiimu

Cheers!

Silence.... 

I have learned the art of staying quiet when angry. Reddit

This form of way to deal with anger doesn't take your anger and saves it up. You don't hold on to your negative thoughts.

Instead you take those emotions and let them go. Instead of saving up anger inside of you, which will indeed hurt your mental health, you take those feelings and realize that being angry isn't the answer. So instead you forget and keep on walking. Tsoof_S

Diffusing.  

I love you. It diffuses situations nicely. Why get angry at a store clerk? They and their incompetence will be out of your life in minutes. Not worth words, let alone anger. Jarcus78

I definitely could murder people with words....

Angry at a situation: "You've GOT to be KIDDING me."

Angry at a person: a stoic "Yeah, please never do that again."

If I legitimately snap, I'll usually break out the comedic / obscure lines, like "I don't know what the Kellogg's Frosted DAMN you're thinking, but..." because I think it helps de-escalate my own anger and it mitigates the chances of actually hurting someone's feelings.

I definitely could murder people with words, but I feel like the satisfaction of doing that would never justify the possibility of opening peoples old emotional wounds that they've spent years healing and coming to terms with. onecollectivepotato

Gosh!

I have a habit of saying "god bless America" instead of "God darn it." I blame my parents for not using more expletives. hugs_n_slugs

Our interactions with strangers can be pleasant – whether it's a fellow customer at a store smiling at us or talking sports or other mutual interests with a friendly bartender.

Deciding to foster a child, while clearly admirable, is the furthest thing from a no-brainer. So much consideration must go into the decision to provide safety and security to a child who hasn't always had it.

Who knows us better than our parents?

A lot of people, in fact. Not every person's relationship with their parents is perfect, and sometimes people have reasons why they hide things or choose not to be entirely honest that are perfectly valid. It takes a lot of courage to be open––especially if the environment in which we grew up wasn't exactly ideal.

That's what we were reminded of after Redditor Magical-Potato-Chips asked the online community,

"What's something you've wanted to tell your parents but won't because it'll break their hearts?"
