When you get angry, are you the type to let go? Or the type to hang on to it for awhile?

It depends for me. The severity of the "offense". But I think it runs in the family. Everything I ever let go of, I left claw marks! hahaha! But how about you? What type are you?

  • I don't get angry easily, tend to laugh a lot.  If I end up getting angry, I am only angry for a short time.

  • Like you said, it depends on the "offense", or the mood I'm in at the time that sh@# hits the fan. No matter what though, it always come out eventually. (Even 2 wks after the fact. (when arguing w/ hubby) LOL.

  • It depends but I notice that now that I'm in my 40s my temper has gotten worse then it has ever been. I don't know why that is.

  • It takes a lot to really make me mad, but once I am I just let it all out and I'm done.

  • If it is someone I love, care about and respect, i can let it go.
    But if you don't fall into that category, I can hold a grudge for a long time.

  • I usually let it go if it's something stupid you know, but if it's something major then I might keep the grudge for a couple of days, weeks, months, years lol or forever!
