I’ve observed that much of my anger is usually anger at myself for letting certain “atrocities” happen to me.
After realizing that anger isn’t external but internal, I then took a different tack - I dug into myself to understand why I would always be so pissed off by
It was a good friend who totally “lost it” on me. He was angry about something which I had done and he took it to text messages to convey his anger.
I didn’t realize it at that time, but I grew up collecting the residual anger from my family and their recurring arguments. I realize now I was a child in training to become a narcissist.
