Anger management 101...

It's no secret that I am very quick to anger. Most people can do the Edward Vogler act and size me up this way in three seconds. It seems no matter how hard I try to distract myself from getting pissed off, I'm just too damn transparent to be 100% successful.

So I really, really wonder how people who are exposed to even more stress and humiliation than me can withstand it all and still keep a straight face, only breaking down when they think no one's watching. What do Celine and Grace have that I don't?

I really wish I could learn how to dismiss things and say they're not worth my annoyance. "It's just work." "It's just a game." "It's just a bad day for driving." Uttering those things and meaning them is actually pretty tough to do on my part.
