I have had growing issues with anger over the last few years, but I feel like they are coming to a head. I believe that they stem from years of being a pushover, being treated badly by individuals in my friendships and romantic relationships, and from years of having my life dictated to me by my mother. I think that my anger is beginning to affect my marriage and some of my current friendships. I find that I am complaining about everything, I am excessively irritable, I want to distance myself from people when they do things I do not like, I turn inwards and do not like to communicate when I am angry, I can be very spiteful and disrespectful when I am angry, and I lash out when I am pushed. I was a psychology major in undergrad, so I am very aware of my emotions, and I sometimes over-psychanalyze myself, but I am having a difficult time finding a way to constructively channel my anger and get on the right path. I think that my responses to people and situations are not always appropriate, and I feel like I have become too pessimistic and negative. I need some outlets to channel my anger constructively. More than that, can someone please help me with how I can begin an attitude makeover?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
