Absolutely. The last time I was really tremendously furious was, oooh, probably 91 or 90. It's just not worth getting so attached to something that you get pissed off when it is thwarted/broken/negated etc. And yes, bad things have happened, people have been mean to me, I've been fairly comprehensively betrayed by very close friends a couple of times in the last 6 years, but I never became enraged or furious. *I'm* in charge, not my hormones.
