My boyfriend is an emotionally healthy person with situationally appropriate emotional responses! How do I deal with that?
After years of not-quite-emotionally-healthy surroundings, I'm usually tense and awkward around people when they get angry because I'm expecting them to inevitably turn their anger towards me. My boyfriend totally doesn't do that! But now I realize that I don't know what normal people are supposed to do when their S.O. is frustrated. [more inside]

Postscript to a relationship? Is it a good idea? Can it be done constructively? Or is it purely self-serving?
My relationship has ended and through this process I've realized certain things. I want to share my clarity with my ex. I'm sure there are selfish reasons I have this impulse, but I also am a bit concerned that he may truly not be conscious of, what I consider to be, serious anger issues- which I hesitate to call verbal abuse, although that is most likely accurate. I never named things this way while in our relationship- we would argue around in a maze of clever denials and emotional outbursts- which I never found my way out of. . . So, am I tricking myself by thinking that this is something he needs to be confronted with for his emotional health? Or is there potentially some positive way to convey this harsh reality to someone who, so far, has not been able to acknowledge the severity of their behavior?

Does anyone know where can I find a better copy of the woodcut image of a satyr copulating with a goat at 2:56 of this segment of Kenneth Anger's Lucifier Rising?
Often, when I disagree with, or I'm arguing with someone, they'll ask me "Why are you so angry?" I don't FEEL all that angry, but when I look back at it I certainly act like an ass, saying things I don't mean. I'm not sure what exactly to call this, so I'm falling short on searching for advice. Thanks!

I have witnessed road rage and I want to complain about it. How should I go about this? Or should I just leave it? I live in Vaughan, Ontatio (a suburb of Toronto). I witnessed a man get out of his car (I didn't get the plate number but it was a company van with the company address and logo on it) and yell at the other driver, hit his window repeatedly and then opened his door to yank the driver out of his car. Luckily the other driver managed to let go of him and shut his door. Then the aggressor went on to kick his driver side door. It was a traumatic to witness this incident for me. I wonder what the poor driver of the other car must have gone through. All he did was block a lane to get into a lane from the gas station that would make a left turn. The other driver obviously angry that his man blocked the lane (mind you the light ahead was red). So how should I go about this? I have never reported such an incident. Should I call 911?
