Sometimes I want to be really mean

But I stop, think and breath and can usually stop it.  What do you do to settle down?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Having that mean feeling is very rare for me - but when it does rear its head, I usually debate the consequences of my initial reaction before jumping to it. But being mean is open for interpretation too; what I find mean may not be the same for others and vice versa.

I walk away.  Me being mean isn't going to make me feel any better so I choose to just walk away.

I let it go and walk away.

Or I tell them to fuck off.

Or I tell them to fuck off as I walk away.

I like yours better, too. I like to take personal responsibility for my thoughts and actions, since it is I who control them.

You couldn't be mean if someone paid you.

I'm not mean. It's often interpreted as mean when I say no or put a stop to things. I'm pretty good at controlling my environment. That helps keep things settled down.

OP, I have never seen you be "mean."

I try to keep cool, I just put things in perspective.  I don't always succeed, sometimes it's OK to speak your mind.
