During the past few weeks I have felt just plain angry about almost everything. I have no patience for anyone, it seems, and get upset by the smallest things. I find I cannot abide small-talk, often thinking to myself, "My God! Will you just shut up?!"

Mrs. has been watching a lot of network TV and I get angry watching literally anything (not just news). Political ads from either party vex me. But... even things like Entertainment Tonight, that stupid nonsense that they report on... UGH! Why does anyone give a shit about these people??? Then we were chatting last night when the premiere of Dancing with the Stars came on TV. After perhaps 5 minutes, I had to leave the room because I was so annoyed by how stupid it was! I decided to go for a bike ride... On the ride, a driver pulled over and parked in the designated bike lane (no parking) which forced me into traffic. I yelled "What are you doing?" as I passed and literally wanted to go back and punch her in the face after she yelled back at me, "Fuck you, asshole!"

I feel like I'm just fed up with everything!
I feel just like you. Everything little thing can set me off. It just seems there is no escaping it. I miss the days when I could go to a local pub(bar) have a beer watch a game I was not even interested in and talk about nothing other than maybe a bad joke or a stupid story about nothing in particular

I had something like that a very long time ago. To much work related stress and that made get also angry when i waa free from work. I managed to get it out out of my system after some good talks with my best girlfriend and later on wife.

I work in IT by the way, sometimes the most ungrateful job in the world. I every thing is working it is not because of me, and on some days i get blamed for everything including the weather, bad coffee etc.

Because off some problems with my blood pressure i needed to get sporting (yes, should have done this to prevent blood pressure problems). My problem was with going to a gym I couldn’t get my mind clear. During cardio and fitness training my mind still wandered off to the trouble at work. So I needed tomdo something that prevents me from wandering off.

In my case I started Karv Maga trainig.
If your not paying attention you will get hurt, not to much but still. I am 45, training with male and females in the ages between 16 and 50. Incredibly nice people, not at all aggressive by nature. Just wanting to train, learn something useful and you really need to learn to trust each other. If your not careful enough you can hurt someone. And yes, I had injuries because I was paying attention. During training you will be brought in stressfull situations, simulating real life stress. If you train to defend yourself against a knife attack it helps if you teain it with high stresslevels and learn to act without panic and use your brain.
The time between the natural freeze and acting should be a short as possible. I can go on but just take an introduction lesson if you can.

Bottom line, Krav Maga made me a much calmer person and I don’t get mad anymore about idiots, at least not as much as you desribed here. Just my two cents.

Ps
Love al of you stories. Maybe an idea to write some more as a form of stress release, and please show them to us? Just kidding, take care and please watch your self.

Greetings,

Rene

Whether you realize it or not, there's a shitload of stress raining down on you these days. The economy is shit, the environment has finally stopped giving a fuck, and there's a friggin' pandemic going on. The fact that any of us made it this long without freaking out is a testament to our fortitude.

But you have to recognize the stress and give yourself a break. Take a step back. Breathe. Find something that just puts you at ease. Detach from the world as much as you need to -- hopefully it'll still be around when you decide to rejoin it.

We're all getting crushed these days. If we don't take the time to help ourselves, who will?

I don’t post often but I felt this on a spiritual level Crank. This has easily been the worst year of my life. I struggle a bit with mental health so thank goodness for my girlfriend to support and guide me throughout this hellish year. I lost my job earlier on during the shutdown and wasn’t being paid unemployment due to clerical errors and so much back up in the system. The countless job rejections took their toll too. As a result I fell into a depression. I’m an avid sports fan so that little bit of joy was taken from me as well. Just as things were getting better more crap had to happen. I’m a bit younger (24) and just 5 days ago I lost my grandfather to Covid. We were very close and I’m still hurting quite a bit. I’ve never been more angry than on that day. However, I’m trying to channel that energy into something positive and productive like going to the gym or some other kind of thing to make the day a net positive in my mind. This F ing virus has taken so much and all but ruined this year for me, but I’m really trying to finish strong and bring that positivity into next year. I think it’s all about how you handle the stress you know? If you put that anger into something positive. It won’t manifest itself in such an aggressive way. Everyone has the right to be angry I sure as hell am. But I’m gonna try to put it to good use. Take care!

Crank - Covid has been f'n with a lot of peoples emotional state lately, I had to leave LV and go on a 2 month cross country trip (in Miami now) to see loved ones and friends as I was getting in a bad spot also with being unhappy and just feeling blah. Def suggest doing more stuff outside, working out in some form and talking to loved ones about it, much better idea than keeping everything pent up inside you. My biggest regret in life is not talking to someone the one time I got real bad and as a result I lost an amazing girl (posted pics on here before of her when she shaved her head) and still cant forgive myself, so dont be a dumbass like me and let it get too far.

Unresolved emotions and unreleased emotional energy that is stored within you.

Do some research about it, you will see.

The anger I felt hearing that vapid and mindless babbling and gossip on Entertainment Tonight caught me off guard. Really? It is not like me at all to get triggered like this. Maybe I really am turning into an old "crank"!
It makes sense, though.

"The world is literally on fire -- who gives a shit what the latest trend in celebrity footwear is?!?!"

If anything, that reaction is more sane than not reacting that way. But we need to find ways to pull us away from the edge, or, to work in another metaphor, off-load some of the weight from our camel so the Entertainment Tonight straw is not the one that breaks its back.

"Bread and Circuses". Media and corporations want to have us all under their control, so that's the world that we're forced to live in. I myself have just given up. I sure wanted to change the world for the better, but humans are just super-evolved animals. And we still have that animalistic instinct of survival of the fittest, dog-eat-dog. It's genetic. It's in our DNA. We share it with all living species. Humans are just the only living organism with the ability to reason, use logic, be sentient, and have the ability to use science and mathematics. So for all the "super powers" we have over all other living things, we can't help ourselves in our quest to be alpha; top dog. That's why group ABC will do everything in their power to control and hold dominion over group XYZ. We as humans have the ability and means to have a nice, comfortable life for all 7.5 billion of us, but our DNA is too strong to willfully resist those urges. And all it takes is just a very few of us to not embrace our humanity, and cling on to our animalistic urges. That's why a utopian life for all will never come to pass. Our DNA prevents that.
