You have a lot of bent up anger

It’s a common belief that when you have to contort your anger and frustration in order to keep them hidden, pressure starts to build. Pent up anger can start to twist and warp on its own, as well, I suppose. Bent up anger is also reminiscent of being bent out of shape about something. More than 100 hits.

having ways to release your anger (such as exercise, writing down your thoughts in a diary, etc) can help you release bent up anger in a healthy manner.

Golf outburst: I bet the father and son have some sort of disagreement and some panned up anger brewing with each other, and when you gave them a slight opening, they jumped all over you.

I am saving up all my panned up frustration and will unleash on them when I get back … again.html

because of teacher student identities, they had a little panned up frustration when they
were together.
