What is your inner darkness?

Rage or anger.

Anger is a gift

My ballistic temper.Hasn't reared it's ugly head for a good few years now because I saw one of my kids copying it so that was that I had to control it.Always about once a month I would just go mental see red just like my father, I'm ashamed now thinking back that I couldn't see it coming but when things got too much..snap I'd smash something or punch a wall and then storm off.Last time I think smashing up my new kitchen I had just installed .That and my kid copying combined somehow brought me to realise I had to change.life is easier now with not so much pressure which helps.
Never ,never ,never give up

Other/Anger?

I had rage problems when I was a kid. My family is both highly dysfunctional AND poor.
I've calmed down a lot in my age though. I'm definitely not as angry as I was when I was younger. Bitter, I think is probably the better word for it. My hermeticism and social reclusion is sort of a result of my developmental misanthropy. But I've...gotten to where I actually enjoy people, I just don't trust anyone anymore, is all.

And, Other, because I'm a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan, who's basically the godfather of the science fiction/horror genre. I've seen a lot of horror movies as I'm a horror movie buff. Slashers, gore flicks, cult classics, noir horror, but nothing is as horrifying as Lovecraft's stories.

How do I mark all of them?

Every chunk of my life, based on my actions and the patterns I've established at the time, could be described with 1 of those words.

Raised up in a rich home, I gave in to greed.
Then, when I've lost everything as I was just about to enter my adolescence, all I could think of was revenge against those who destroyed my life.
During my young adulthood, that lust for vengeance turned into generic, unfocused anger.
Finally, as an adult, I became bitter and jealous.

And now, as I'm slowly getting ready for my final goodbyes, for the first time in my life - I'm free of it all. I'm finally at peace with myself.

I would say I experience more anxiety but, somehow, all my negative emotions get converted to anger. Then I punch a wall, throw stuff around, scream, etc...

What are you classing as inner darkness? Does regret count? I regret not doing or having done things I wish I had done differently to the point where it will keep me up at night and depressed.

My inner darkness i think is my slowness, speech and it also takes a min to pick something up or put it down, and if I try to do that at normal speed either the book falls or the pen or we all fall LOL. I don't rush or hasty, but funny enough I'm great at racing, and climbing stairs two steps at a time.. XD

Jealously for me....

I feel jealous of people who have it all together financially, and don't live pay check to pay check

I think regret does count but it depend how you regret. Can regret positively or negatively. Like despair. I regret having regrets to regret about  Toungue

I probably have the wrong idea of what 'inner darkness' means. I always thought of inner darkness being something about my personality that causes me shame or guilt. Or maybe, yeah, just something that impacts me negatively.
