Why do you weep? I see this

Why do you weep? I see this more as controlled environment for getting out some anger. Better to destroy a wall than another human, no??

I do, too, but that doesn't

I do, too, but that doesn't take very long. I am efficient,.

Nothing wrong with using destructive energy to destroy inanimate objects who are put in front of you to destroy...

Some would say an Anger Room is a positive purpose, dear.

Interesting idea. I was

Interesting idea.

I was watching Pretty little liars a while back... and of the girls went through a breakup - her mom took her to this place to throw plates at a wall. It did indeed seem pretty therapeutic....for her.

I'm not sure about whether this is something I'd enjoy, as much as I've fantasized about tossing my computer out the window when it causes me headaches...

I think a physical release

I think a physical release can be therapeutic -- my druthers would be to put that entergy towards something that benefits me. I had a really crappy work day yesterday, people issues, computer issues and a staggering workload. I was beyond aggravated at the end of the day. Went for a looooooooong bike ride and pushed out that negative energy and did something good for my heart.

I clean as well.

I also have a home gym, so I'm down there on the rare occasion that cleaning just isn't cutting it for my level of frustration. lol

i very, very, VERY rarely get

i very, very, VERY rarely get angry. pizzed, annoyed AF, highly irritated, yes, but it usually passes pretty quickly on it's own. but actual anger? nah. dh has seen me angry once in 9 1/2 years, and that was at something he told me about MIL. i could easily have choked her out with my bare hands, he said my eyes went BLACK.

but dh could very much use this, i think it'd be therapeutic for him!

When I was going through my

When I was going through my divorce my best friends took me to a greek restaurant to cheer me up.

The food was amazing, the conversation was great and we got to smash plates against a wall after dinner! The owner heard I was going through a divorce. She brought me out a shot of Ouzo and a stack of dishes, she said just keep throwing them till you feel better!

It was a perfect evening.
