FlowersIt was that time of the year again. April 12th was the day. And like always it was a beautiful, clear, warm, and sunny day. Not a cloud was in the sky to dampen the wonderful day. Anthony was driving from the flower shop, having to go to a specific store in Sacramento because the type of flowers he got weren’t at the grocery store.

So this was a rare occasion. California was all about the sun, surf and sand. It was known for Disney Land, Universal Studios and Sea world. People usually traveled to California for those reasons. What about the citizens? Surely they couldn't afford to go there like regulars. Well for the middle class percentage of the desert state. Something came into town. Just like every year.

The day started off with the sun shining. Basically an overdose of light. The sun was ablaze and the streets were covered in mirages. You could make eggs on the hood

Everyone feels angry from time to time and it is perfectly natural and healthy to do so and can even help keep us passionate about things, but when these feelings result in negative actions and are a frequent occurance then steps need to be taken to manage them.
For people with BPD it is the intensity of those feelings and lack of ability to control over them that makes it so difficult to contain and often leads to regrettable consequences/repercussions such as domestic violence, criminal damage, broken relationships and in the worst cases, prison or hospitalization.
When anger kicks in, it feels like an uncontrollable hate fueled rage, the need and desire to show how upset / hurt we are by the cause of our distress - usually
