I've been told recently by a few friends, including my therapist that I have anger issues. At first I took it personally, then a few more times I got kinda more mad. Omg, im an Angry Empath!!! That is what i thought. And "am i turning into a narc!" I get it, we don't live in each other's shoes, and we have to watch for the narc that want us to feel sorry for them. Where this anger is coming from it appears to be multiple people, at work and in friends/family. I do notice I close my heart and shut down. I've been feeling it more so from a friend I haven't spoken to in a week. When I think of her I get upset. The best thing I've done recently is lock myself up at home and talk to no one but my cat. And do things for me. Then I'm happy again and love life, and it starts over again. When I feel strong enough to push that anger from those aside, I feel like 5 more come at me with their anger/frustrations and I feel like collapsing. Today was a great day for that. Ahhh! Sometimes think my strong personality is not able to combat that. Then again i have to isolate myself. I feel so bad that my one friend who gets it, i always blow her off to do something. I know ill be no fun. But I know I should do things with her. The chest pains are coming back and I dislike those very much. (I'm fine, Dr's ruled out everything but say anxiety) Is it just me, or does anyone else get these angry moments? Is it part of living in a big city too?
