why do i keep hitting my head when i'm angry
Self Injury Forum - hitting myself when angry ive written about this before.. (previous title is 'hitting myself') this time it gets worse and worse.. yesterday i felt so angry at my boyfriend so i hit myself.. i smacked and punched my legs till i have bruises.. and i cried like mad.. its not because of the fight, but usually i cry because i hate myself for doing this.. now my legs are covered with bruises.. after the fights, instead of making things better, i blame and start punching myself.. when i hit myself, it feels better.. just for a while.. and i'll feel all horrible and depressed.. i hide behind my smiles, nobody knows i am struggling with this.. people see me as this happy girl.. i am, but when the point gets low, i'll become a total monster.. im not myself..im so tired of injuring myself.. im so tired of hiding..

Anger is one of the most powerful emotions that we have and it is a response to a certain situation that causes it. Many things can make us angry, in our work place, at home, out and about and even at the TV. The most common form of anger is in reaction to something someone has said to us that we feel is unfair, often it involves bullying or verbal slander, or it can be something that has made us disappointed in that person or organization. Controlling your anger in a calm way is something a lot of us strive to do and the majority of people are able to work well on this but there is a portion of the population that do have anger issues which need to be addressed before they get out of hand and gets someone hurt or in trouble.
