> I've been going thru this thing about anger lately. I think it is a real problem, perhaps the big problem for the self preservaional type.

> If we could direct our anger effectively at those who are violating our boundaries, we would be stronger, but we would take less advantage of us, becuase the would just know not too mess.

> I can do this at work - tell people not to mess with me. I cant do it in social or intimate relationships. Those are relationsh of choice, I figger, people will just choose to leave me.

=Have you ever tried writing down what you are angry about? It helps me to look at it, see it for what it is and then and chuck it.....Emptying the garbage can so to speak. Y'know because anger can be such a pesky little bee....it might be small but its sting still hurts.

I'm a social variant .... I guess I am the opposite of you... I have a harder time with telling people who aren't close to me to buzz off.
I guess because I don't know how they will react. Still... if they push enough of my buttons and they do it long enough... I will have an unavoidable spew.

I'm feeling pretty good today.... because I took out a nest of hornets last night.... I think I might even find my sense of humor today! (:
