How long does it take for the "angry hormones" to leave your body?
How long does it take for the “angry hormones” to leave your body?
Example situation: I was once honked at by a rude person, and I remembered becoming upset in a strange way. The angry thoughts came in waves. I’d ruminate over the situation, trying to intellectualize myself out of the anger. It didn’t work, and I became overall pessimistic and I sort of gave a lecture on morality to that person in my head. You know what I mean..
Oddly, a few hours later, the heaviness lifted, just by itself, and I was able to smile and keep light and enjoy myself again.
So it made me wonder if that had anything to do with hormones being worn out.
