3TSpoons on: Why Most People Suffer From Delayed Anger:
- They Take Time To Process Things: Many need time to process things so when someone disrespects them, instead of going head-to-head with them they would rather keep quiet and go analyse what happened only for them to get triggered later. And when they try to address it, they are dismissed as being petty which them fuels the fire even more.
- Trying To Avoid Confrontations: Most people do everything in their power to avoid confrontation. No matter how angry they get they will walk away from a situation because they always prefer peace. However, this works against them, and they later feel like doormats or ass-kissers.
- Their Minds Are Focused on Something Else: At times when people do or say things that offend them, they don’t react because they are preoccupied with other things. But the minute they remember the events that happened then they get angry and regret not confronting the person who disrespected them.
