I've not been here in a while so I have not met you yet, but welcome. In the business world I exist in, I often have arrogant, you knows, tell me how tough they are, how they almost beat up someone and such. I always wondered what I did to elicit such responses. Well, come to find out that I and many other BPer's have a very dangerous rage just below the surface and it is noticeable. And it is a very dangerous rage.
I like warren, was in one to two fights a week in my younger days. I always won, not because of my skills, but because I had a much higher pain threshold and a much lower self worth (I was mostly apathetic towards my injuries) than my adversaries and could outlast anyone.
My Pdoc suggested I take up a martial art. Seemed kind of dangerous with my rage problem, but he said it has been very helpful for people like me. Yes, it helped tremendously. I can now beat up anyone without getting beat up myself. (Just Kidding). I went for the contact arts, spent alot of time on speed and big bags and that did much to settle me down. Plus my instructors (didn't have a sensei) were skilled in working with me in a very calm and rational manner. No, they didn't beat me up, but they were very adept and used to dealing with rage problems. I now have an activity I love and it is helping my anger. I don't even want to be a cage fighter anymore ;)
Maybe this is something you can look into.
Best of luck to you Gaz You are in my prayers
I want "I wish I had one more day to spend at the office" on my tombstone.
