Why Am I Always Angry?: Part 2


I promised you a part 2, so here it is.  I left you with some questions to answer about various things that might have to do with chronic anger.  How did you do with that?  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go here and read part 1 first.  OK, now that you’ve done that, let’s move on to some ways you can recognize and overcome that persistent aggression that is likely holding you back in one or more areas of your life.

Get a Clue

The following symptoms are fairly common with anger issues.  Do you have any of them?

•  Inability to sleep

•  Impatience

•  Often raise your voice

•  Feelings of sadness and despair

•  Intolerance of people who are different

•  Argumentative

•  Sudden, boiling temper that you can’t control


I could go on here, but I think these basic symptoms are enough for you to recognize any issue you might be having.  I used to have an anger problem.  My thing was the sudden, boiling temper that usually resulted in slamming doors and breaking the first thing I could grab and throw.  Definitely not a healthy way to deal with anger.  Let me tell you what I did to overcome it.

First, I made peace with my past.  I explored the unresolved issues and unhealed wounds that ultimately were destroying my attitude about my life at that time.  This is a difficult thing for many people because it can bring unpleasant memories to the surface – ones that you swore to never think of again.  This meant forgiving others, myself, and asking them to forgive me.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Under The Leaves

A few days ago, while raking leaves, my cat loved attacking the rake. I laughed at the amount of joy that Mageara gained from this menial task I needed to finish. I enjoyed the task more because she did. Just as I began to pull in another pile of leaves and the cat jumped at the rake, I took delight in something else! I uncovered little white daisies. They were in full bloom, smiling up at me as if they had the secret to life. I laughed out loud at such a weird find in late fall. And then, of course, I took a picture! Several thoughts came to mind, which I want to share with you.


  1. What happens when the people you need to forgive won’t take ownership for the way they hurt you?

    • Hi Kristen,

      Thank you for your question…it’s a really good one. Unfortunately, we cannot control what others do or think, so this fact makes it difficult to get that 100% satisfaction. However, forgiving someone releases you from the event or events that hurt you. It is a way to accept what has happened and choose to move forward with your life and emotions. That person(s) may never validate you or your pain, but regardless, you have the power to heal and overcome the residual pain that remains. You are the only one who can take “ownership” of your life, pain, thoughts, actions, etc… Hope that helps. Be well.
