Anger management, much?

Recently, on the radio, I heard some good public broadcast that tells people to not litter, smoke and etc.

Anyhow, I heard one advising people not to get angry by holding their breath and counting to ten or thinking about cute things such as puppies.
Listening to that really pissed me off.

If anger was so easy to control or get rid off, wouldn't people get rid or control it by now? Well, obviously, it's not so easy.
And do you really think that in the moment of rage, a person is going to hold his breath or think of puppies? So yea. I'm not saying it's impossible but I'm saying that it's hard.

And do you really think that an angry person likes that they get angry easily? Don't you think they want to change to? If it were that simple, don't you think that the anger would be gone?

So I find this advice pointless, stupid and demeaning.

True, some people can control their anger better...but not all. And this applies to me.

I snap more than I like to admit and I'm not proud of it.

Being a person with a bad temper sucks.

Have you watched durarara? If you have, I'll say that being angry is like being Shizuo Heiwajima.

If you haven't, I'll still explain why angers sucks.

Anyhow, Shizuo Heiwajima is the epitome of every bad tempered person, only that it is really exaggerated.

He hates violence A LOT but he uses it the most. I mean, every time, he gets angry, he will get violent.
He does not enjoy it, one bit because well, he hurts himself (his bones break every time, he lifts a vending machine in anger) and he hurts everything around him including innocent people, the environment and loved ones.

It's the same with angry people. When you get angry, you hurt the people around you as well as yourself.
So yea. It's not fun being angry.

But then again, being angry in the moment makes you feel powerful. The anger feeds your ego, giving you an illusion of power and strength.
But as soon as that moment pass, you regret everything you do.

Just like Shizuo Heiwajima said, 
"I am the biggest coward. I distance people away because I don't want to hurt them."

I kinda agree with what he said. Sometimes, we, bad tempered people are worried that we will hurt others and ourselves so we distance ourselves. So yea.

I'm not saying that you can't control anger. I'm just saying that it's not as simple as it is and you never really know how hard that person has been trying to control it.

Can you imagine the feeling of frustration, anger and sadness to know that you can't even control your own emotion?

So, all I am saying is that, angry people sometimes don't want to be angry but that's just the way they are reacting. 
But I'm not saying that people should stop controlling their anger and let it be. I'm just saying, before you judge, think twice.

And to every hot tempered person out there, keep on doing your best on controlling your anger~! Never give up~!

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
