I am really struggling with anger issues. There are a lot of aggressive people out there, and I tend to be aggressive/hostile in return, or end up feeling like I was abused and then I get angry for not standing up for myself. I feel the worst when I'm angry at people who have never done anything to me. My abuser was actually kind to me*before the actual abuse), is this why I act this way? I think the worst thing I do is to insinuate. It feels so passive aggresive, why can't I just say what I mean and mean what I say?

Luke 18:10-14 Once there were two men who went into the temple to pray... for those who make themselves great will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be made great.
