Let go of anger
In today’s world, there’s no shortage of things to make you angry. But is angry really the way you want to be?
Anger certainly grabs your attention, heightening your awareness, giving a burst of energy. Yet once that happens, anger has nothing more to offer.
Maintaining anger will drain your energy. And what you get in return is nothing of any value.
Be angry if you must, then quickly let the anger go. Free yourself to respond in a way that’s beneficial and effective.
Don’t let yourself be trapped by anger and forced into a destructive reaction. Step away from the desire for revenge or punishment, and find a positive response.
Focus on the good you can do, on the positive difference you can make. Leave anger behind as you move forward with the commitment to make things better.
