I tend to cry when I get angry. I feel like I can't express emotions around certain people, so when I get angry, I just break down. Its so bad that my parents actually think that I am incapable of having any feelings whatsoever. There's going to be a showdown with my dad in the near future (regarding life choices and the fact that he is the most close-minded, judgemental person on the planet). Anyway, its hard for someone to take you seriously during an argument if you're bawling your eyes out. I also have a really hard time collecting my thoughts for articulate responses when I'm being confronted and/or having an argument. SO I guess my questions are: how does one not cry when angry (and beating the living shit out of the other person isn't an option), and how does one come up with decent responses in the heat of the moment? Its like everything I need to say flies out of my brain the moment I need to bring it up. Hmm.
