The upside of anger

...is a myth. There is also no such thing as an over-reaction. It is merely the full uninhibited reaction, as against a damped, contained, muted, semi-strangled one. Frustration is the ever growing remainder of all this damping, muting and strangling, growing until one feels compelled almost, to do something genuinely stupid. If one capitulates, remorse/sorrow/guilt/[insert unpleasantness of your choice] almost immediately follows. If not, the frustration simmers on, slowly but surely coming to a point when it boils over as anger. And since there is no upside to this, there are merely further additions to the stock of frustration. Vicious cycle.

However, there are remedies. A personal favourite being chocolate chip cookies. :)

I was all set to put a serious, well-thought out comment to your post, and then I read this one, and now I'm rolling all over the floor! LOL!!!
Hahn, will attempt to salvage whatever I can of that comment I was going to put. Which is -- Amen! Absolutely spot on! To all of it. The anger, the frustration, the cookies :))
