Rage
« on: Sep 13, 2020, 04:07:50 PM »
  I've always considered myself an even-tempered sort of bloke but recently have found myself suddenly flying into a blind rage for the smallest of silly reasons! No idea why and it's only cost me a new alarm clock so far but it's not me and I don't like it..Any thoughts? :-\

I have a lot of anger in my personality. Its not a part of myself I particularly like. When I was 11 I broke another childs nose. He was twice my size and a bully.


But its also that part of me I draw strength from when there are obstacles to be overcome or tasks to be completed when I dont feel like doing them. Like getting up when I feel lousy or packing parcels until midnight and beyond because there are customers waiting.

Every negative characteristic in my personality has its positive side and vice versa.

Rather than getting angry I now rely far more on my wits.

I've been a lot more uptight and my mood changes in a flash just lately. I think it's all down to having our way of life turned upside down. It's certainly altered things.

I think the lock down and the various do's and don'ts around the virus has a lot do with rage. I'm usually very easy going but I have found the last 6 months awful. Our whole routine has been turned upside down, I have found myself getting very angry, usually with myself !!!

I can see civil violence erupting in this country in the forseeable future if this loony government does not pull back from the brink.

Can't say I get into a rage these days, takes too much energy. Irritation with the selfish and unthinking is more likely.


But then they irritated me before lockdown.   :-[

How did our parents cope with their ' lockdown'  during WWII  ?  Imagine spending hours in air raid shelters, not being able to buy fresh food, losing friends and family to Hitler's bombs ?  Although it hasn't been good these last few months, this country has seen far worse and bounced back.


Perhaps the rage we feel is Victor Meldrew syndrome and not Covid 19  😀

I am rather a placid person.. I donít Ď fly into a rageí and never have .. However, I am not a walkover and will speak up for myself or others if I think them right...


I donít throw things or break things because I then have to clear it up.. Bloody stupid..

Yeah, I spent weeks down the  Anderson shelter with my parents, and they had the added hell of so many of those nights with little sleep, due to the noise of bombs and Ack Ack gunfire, but still had to do a  hard days work the following day.

As I said, "I don't like it"..The reason I posted was that it's not normal for me and was curious as to whether others were experiencing non-normal emotions. Lockdown is more or less how my life is anyway and is no real problem so isn't the direct cause.. and I know things were worse during the war ffs.

It was very different. The rest was an easily identifiable cause - the Nazis - and and identifiable solution. Smash the sods!
This kruse is invisible, and we are bombarded with contradictory advice, much of which seems to fly in the face of common sense, leading to a sense of frustration and anger
