Grumpa struggles with uncontrollable rage; Anger Management

The Abuse Jun 4, 2019

Aunt Brie struggles to suppress her own anger that she gets from Grumpa.

"Because sometimes I do lose my temper, I act lesser than, I let my worst self get the best of me, I can also be a fucking asshole. Especially via text message. Every day, I struggle to suppress this part of myself, the part of myself I get from my dad."

Here is an excerpt of Aunt Brie's blog post from June 4, 2019:

These Pictures Tell A Lie, I Am a Very Flawed Mother

June 4, 2019

"Most people are assholes. Caleb’s general belief is that one should go through life fighting with as few people as possible, and whenever I tell him a story about someone pissing me off, he gets a look on his face like, “Oh no, you didn’t go psycho on them, did you?” Because sometimes I do lose my temper, I act lesser than, I let my worst self get the best of me, I can also be a fucking asshole. Especially via text message.

Every day, I struggle to suppress this part of myself, the part of myself I get from my dad, who last weekend, at the Memorial Day parade in Chappaqua, was the sole person screaming at the people who had come in from Michigan to heckle the Clintons as they walked by, and it is fucking exhausting."
