I Am A 40 Year Old Man And I Am Angry About Everything

by James
(Auburn, Ca)

I'm angry because I was a drug addict for so many years. I am angry because I have had 2 different domestic violence cases which should have been 3, with 3 different women.

I am angry because I have held myself back from being successful due to my anger issues. I have a lot of reasons why I am angry. Heck, I get angry because my computer isn't fast enough. I could go on all day about why I am angry but the number one reason I am angry is because I cannot seem to figure out how to break this evil angry cycle.


I have a 14 yr daughter who is starting to show the signs of always being angry. I feel this could be reversed should she see me not being angry all the time. I also have an almost 3 year old son that shows signs of copying me. I know its not too late for him.

I'm even angry that at this time. I really need help with my anger, and am not able to give a contribution at this time because I am angry at being on unemployment and falling behind in my bills. I'm angry because I am angry.

Response from Dr. DeFoore

Hello James, and thanks for telling your story here. I really get the feeling you're ready to do something about all of the anger. It won't be quick or easy, but if you set your mind to it and apply some healthy anger to getting the job done, you will succeed.

I suggest you look at the first question on our FAQ page, and follow the instructions you find there. They fit your situation very well.

It is such a good thing that you are concerned about your children, and want the best for them. Imagine having that same kind of love for yourself.

If you want more structured guidelines, you might consider these online anger management classes. They are professionally designed, and top of the line in quality.

You are a good man, James, or you would not have told your story here. Follow my recommendations, and stick with it, and you will get to where you want to be. Set your mind and your good heart to it.

My very best to you,

Dr. DeFoore
