    Hot temper

    My whole family are hot tempered people. Can such trait be passed down from one generation to the next? if i do process such a character trait, are there any medications i can take to be more calm, and complacent? I seem to get paranoia and **** at every god damn thing.

    Hot temper

    Anger is as often a symptom of something else like depression or anxiety that a standalone problem. In many cases, cognitive behavior therapy is helpful, and perhaps one of the SSRI medications might also be beneficial.

    Can a person be angry due to PTSD or even bipolar?

    Definitely, especially if one is more likely to blame others for one's distress. There's also the famous Yoda quote:

    “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
    “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.” ~ Rumi
