  • I voted somewhat cause I started out loving and kind but then was abused mentally and emotionally by my parents and that hardened me up and made me bitter and aggressive and hostile - slowly I softened down a lot - but I can still be impatient and bitter sometimes and have a low tolerance for certain types of people who annoy me whereas in the past - I would have patiently tolerated somebody who was annoying - now I just shut them out whenever possible. I think I am learning to relearn how to love others and feel sympathy for them.

  • I don't think I am angry, more just annoyed and wish people would know what is right and wrong to say. angry means that you want to do something mean back to them because you are so angry at what they did. Being annoyed just means that you find it wrong what they did, but you don't care that they did it. Not getting angry or annoyed and being happy about it means that you actually LIKED what they did... and approve of it.

    Example: Someone just slammed their car into your car and then drove off.
    You can either get angry: Try to find that car and slam your car into their car too...

    or get annoyed and just call insurance to take care of it or what not.

    or get happy about it and feel happy that someone was paying enough attention to you to slam into your car whether it was on purpose or accident.

  • I'm opposite. I find less reasons to be angry these days. I mean, I've still got some aging tendencies to get annoyed with what young people do sometimes, but it doesn't reach any visceral kind of rage as I used to carry towards the world when I was much younger.

    • My life has also gotten a lot easier. I can relax more. It's not so much like "work my ass off and party over the weekends and then try to work my ass off again while hungover". It's more like "work moderately and party moderately and be lazy most of the time." :-D

    • Also feel healthier in some respects? Like there are obvious things that my body is older, but because I have a lot more free time and a more relaxing lifestyle, I can work out more. When I was younger I had the youthful energy but I was spending a lot of it with sleepless nights from either working or partying too hard, and barely had the energy to pay attention to my own health. So I was often tired and irritable and sleepless back then. These days I'm all mellowed out and feel like I'm in pretty good shape.

  • I feel like my life has become more difficult in many ways... less carefree.

    However, I have actually become milder. I don't feel angry anymore like I did as a teenager. I just kind of let things be. That doesn't mean I'm not interested or they don't affect me but I try to take every blow with dignity and I try hard to see the bright side of life.

  • Just the opposite, actually haha. I was a very angry child from going through a lot at a young age, and now I am actually enjoying life even though I am still dealing with the past and what is going on now

  • I haven’t noticed myself getting angrier over the years at all but according to my friends, I’ve gotten angrier and angrier as high school has progressed and they think I’m gonna reach my tipping point soon. This kind of concerns me because I haven’t noticed this at all but my friends are all in agreement with this😂

  • For men at least it's natural. From late teens to mid twenties you do have a testosterone surge that makes you slightly angrier and more aggressive tenancies. However this does subside with age.

    However, as for what life experiences happen to you to make you angry is a whole new story.

  • I think I've become angrier because people have gotten more full of themselves. The laborers union in Pennsylvania thinks it's cool to poison babies to feel special. Don't think it's about how hard life is as I have it pretty easy. Just think with 8% of people thinking they're special in 1963 and 65% in 2014, how many people think they're gods above everything else.

  • No, life has become much easier due to the money that comes with experience.

    What I have noticed is that I care less about what other people do with themselves (gays for example), but I care more than ever what people want to do to me (such as tax me more or restrict my rights).

  • Angrier yes, life harder? Somewhat. Just because as you get older your become more educated on how things work, doesn't make it harder, you just know it could be easier.

  • My anger was (fruitlessly) spent during earlier life phases. My life becomes/became increasingly easier, just because of that. So: it's somehow the opposite of your question theme.

  • I have become less angry by far. I feel as if i have been transformed byblifes experiences. I have had plentybof good and many bad. I have reacted with anger plenty of times. I realized it just made me look stupid and in the heat of anger things got worse because i made poor decisions. Some of the same situatipns i face calmly and with a clear head am able to make better decisions. Mostly i try to make the other person more angry and have them make stupid decisions. Most of the time though its really not even worth the trouble. I pick my battles more wisely.
