Comment on The Beast Within Me by slrman.
I fully emphasize with you. I was mentally and sometimes physically abused and I still carry that anger today. It mostly emerges as anger when things to not go the way I expect them to go, based upon other people’s promises. I become angry when people are inconsiderate or abusive toward others. Normally, it does not take a physical outlet but have been know to be violent upon occasion. When physically assaulted, I respond often out of proportion to the threat.
I think the beast lives in many of us, most often concealed and causing ulcers and other physical ailments.
