Who else is really really bad about this (on every platform not just hipinion), and wants to stop but doesn't seem to be able to help themselves?

i was gonna make a post in the other thread...like, hipinion threads (specifically politically charged ones) are like getting a bunch of friends together around a table and forcing them to talk about politics. if you had to do that all the time with your irl friends you'd probably end up fucking hating each other. the internet provides some distance, but we're still pretty pal-y around here, all things considered. shit gets awkward fast. and turning the other cheek is incredibly difficult to do online it seems.

yeah, idk it seems being behind a keyboard and a screen suppresses your inhibitions about what you say.

argue on the internet.

not to win arguments, but so that people who have to read all the shitty things your co-worker/uncle/president thinks can watch him get quickly and handily owned.

problem with arguing on the net is that you feel good at the beginning and then dumb and pretty hollow at the end

In the past 6 months or so I've realized that I have a real hard problem when I argue in going from 0 to 100 very quickly. Like I stay calm for a while and then the next second I'm angry as hell and saying the meanest/cutting thing I can think of. This is in my real life too, and I'm trying to figure out how to recognize when I'm about to do it and to cool off.

I always feel bad about it like 2 seconds after too, but I need to start recognizing how shitty it is before I do it.

That's me, but not in the past 6 months, more like.. since puberty? I was the biggest outright cunt I have ever come across age 15 to mid 20ies. Very chill as long as I was chill. Then ooops, before I know it, chill-to-hundred in 5 seconds flat and the fun is over. The second I started cutting someone down with words, those cuts were ugly. I don't think I'm necessarily a better or nicer person now, I still know what I would say if I would go down the cutting path once I'm on 100. I just don't spit it out so often. What I still need to learn a lot better is to notice about 10 seconds faster that I'm about to reach 100 than I currently do. I would like to make a more graceful exit to cool off than I am able to atm. This morning I reached 100, and made it out the door in time, but it was probably pretty funny to look at, I only managed to move my ass the second I realized my mouth was open and I was about to go on a cutting spree. Stood up, turned around, left the room. Lololol

Oh yeah I just mean I've been able to notice/get better in the last 6 months. This is probably just how I've been forever. My gf has a long running joke about how I am "militantly chill" like the thing that makes me angries the quickest is when other people won't stop being upset

Ahaha "militantly chill" is a nice one.
I got worse with all of this in the past 6 months. My patience to hear bullshit is as low as it hasn't been in over a decade probably. It doesn't even have to be a convo involving politics, I simply hear phrasing or....hm opinions I associate with politics no matter what. And then I'm on 100 pretty damn fast. It's not fair really, not to anyone who opens their mouth when I can hear it. But I can't help myself, I call it the Trump-curse.

I think doing what I'm doing is actually a step back to becoming less of an asswipe. My job requires to shit people into the ground. And I do that quite efficiently. So on one hand, I perfect the cruel-art of going off on someone or a dozen people at the same time, on the other hand I'm trying to NOT do that as "private person."

Probably one of the reasons why I only feel really comfortable talking "serious topics" with my partner, a handful of people who have known my shit for a long, long time and otherwise try to not get into any heated convos at all.
