    My anger: I vent…to my mother, to my husband…if I am with my kids I ask them not to talk to me (so I don’t use them as a scapegoat)…and I try to take a timeout for myself. In the case of Walmart…I vent on my blog…actually, my blog allows me to vent a lot which is good.

  2. SKL says:

    My anger: I vent! The madder I am, the more people I vent to until I get enough of it out. Then I figure out how to rationalize whatever made me mad and end up forgiving most of the time.

    Others’ anger: I lay low. I guess I feel like a likely target if others around me get angry. Or maybe I know I am in the wrong on something or other, and I don’t want it to come up when someone’s already in a bad mood.

  3. Sue says:

    It really depends on my mood up until the anger point. Most times I vent, sometimes I confront and other times I can blow it off. Just depends on the day!

    With my anger.I usually shut up or shut down.I will vent to someone I trust.Then let it go.I never let it out on someone else.
    Now someones elses anger.I will chose to walk away.Life is to short to let anger of others affect me.
    This has all been a life of growing and experiences to come to where I am today.
    LIFE IS JUST TO SHORT.And being angry just drains you.Listening to anothers anger also is draining.

    When I’m angry I also usually vent to someone I trust…or I just try to get out for a run and let out all the excess energy

    Other peoples anger… I walk away or listen to them vent. I refuse to be used as a scapegoat. If Im the reason they are angry, I’m happy to talk about it when the anger has subsided a little bit.

    Well apparently not very well when I have no coffee! And normally I’m like Sue it depends on MY mood and the situation.

  7. Just a Mom says:

    My anger…I hold it all in until someone, usually an innocent party, hits my button just one too many times and then I blow! And when I blow you better get out of the way!

    Others anger…I tend to go into hiding.

  8. Joy says:

    I rant and rave in private. Usually to myself. If someone else is mad, I walk away. I hate to fight and would rather let things cool down before discussing things.

  9. Laura says:

    Oh, it depends upon who or what I’m angry at. If it’s my usual target, the gub’mint, I just rant, or write a post, or yell at the radio (especially if I’m alone in the vehicle).

    If it’s someone, it depends on who it is and the situation. Josh, I usually either just set it aside and deal calmly, or if it’s REALLY bad, I’ll tell him to either go to his room and play quietly for a while, or I’ll say, “I’m going outside because I’m very angry right now”… and we’ll deal with it when I’m calmer.

    If it’s Steve? Depends on the situation, but here lately, I just bag it and blow it off, ’cause really, it’s not worth it, ’cause it’s probably not going to change.

    Mostly, I just try to let it pass, because I agree… life is just too short to be mad for too long.

    I don’t handle my anger well. I’m still learning.

    The anger of others. I usually find it funny.. Hmmph.. *shrugs*

    WHEN SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING IN ANGER I WILL PRETEND NOT TO HAVE HEARD THEM AND REQUEST THEM TO REPEAT AGAIN. NINE OUT OF TEN TIMES YOU WILL HEAR IT A FEW WORDS LESS WITH LESS STEAM. TRY IT NEXT TIME.
    MY ANGER? WHAT CAN IT DO TO OTHERS. SO I TRY NOT TO SHOW IT. ANGER TO ME IS A WASTEFUL EMOTION, IT DOES NO GOOD TO YOU. YOU MAY SOMETHING WHICH WAS HIDDEN IN YOUR MIND .

    What a timely question.

    Today our 20 year old daughter had her gallbladder removed. She stayed in recovery for an hour and fifteen minutes becuase she was having so much pain and problems with the pain meds. When they brought her to her room she was physically crying, moaning and (literally) screaming with pain. The nurse kept saying, “We’ve given her all the pain meds we can.” After nearly THREE HOURS of listening to her scream in pain I told the nurse, “Either she gets something that actually kills the pain or you had better call security.” It wasn’t long before the anesthesiologist was in the room and prescribed some additional/different meds.

    I handle my anger differently when it concerns one of my family members.
