We have all seen when anger is out of control or destructive. It flares up like a fire and it smolders long after extinguished. We shout and say things we don’t mean, continued to be resentful and to ruminate on the offense.
Physiologically, it really does not matter whether your anger is justified or not. The body does not make moral adjustments about feelings – it simply responds. Read the quotes below on anger and then ask yourself, “Is that really worth it?
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape one hundred days of sorrow.
For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.|
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you kick a stone in anger, you’ll hurt your own foot.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
