I'm so angry.

Ranty rant rant rant.

That's about all.

I don't understand why I get so angry when people have different opinions from me - especially in situation when there is no right answer. Logically I know that no one is right or wrong, but I have this huge burning anger when someone disagrees with me about something that I *know*(I'm going for the whole metaphorical opinionated know here) is right. Or when someone likes something I really really don't. I don't understand it, and most of the time I don't even want to try and fix my anger, I just want to feed it - or change that persons opinion.

It eats at me when someone has a wrong(Going for sarcasm there) opinion. ESPECIALLY in fandom. Or when someone observes and gets a completely opposite conclusion from something and they form opinions based on that.

I don't understand it and I don't understand why I can't just accept it and move on...

The whole thing makes me bitchy and pissed.

People get angry like this when they emotionally invest themselves in something. When people are passionate about things, it can be great, but it can also be really ugly. You can either disengage from the things you're invested in, or find like-minded people and hang out with them. Your anger will probably even out and peter off eventually, but until then you can manage it by avoiding the things that make you angry in the first place.

Certain things about a certain show anger me, and so to avoid getting unnecessarily upset I avoid certain people's posts about that show because they hold the exact opposite opinion to me it usually ends up with me unhappy for no logical reason. I'm much happy when I control my environment and avoid the things that make me sad/mad/upset.
Thats a good way to look at it. I'll just have to try and control my environment more I guess.

Thanks :)
There are certainly places and people who vehemently purport to love the same shows I do and in the same breath demand reparations from the shows' creators for their self-implosion. To me, I feel like, if you don't feel the love, mourn and leave, don't hang around and complain and vent your frustration. But, I know a lot of people would disagree and say that this is the ride of the fan and there are legitimate reasons to be upset about changes in the direction of a show. I think that's true, too, but for me, it's the constant "I KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO PISS ALL OVER PERFECTION, THE SHOW'S CREATOR HATES HIS OWN SHOW, I SHOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN INTO THE SHOW TO BEGIN WITH" lamentations that can depress the hell out of you when you're just interested in watching and discussing the episodes as they come.

So, I do my best to just scroll past what I know is going to be those kind of upset and rage-filled posts and not let someone's opinion ruin my equally valid positive fannish experience. Can't always do it, but I don't know any other way to resolve it without making one of those insanely dramatic "I'm leaving fandom!" exits and never reading anything online about the shows I love.
