Motivation Monday: Anger

[BrainyQuote.com]
We've all done it. Nursed a grudge. Harbored ill feelings towards someone for how they've treated us. Thought about revenge.

The first time I read this quote I was stunned at how true it was. It has taught me to let things go. The person you are angry with couldn't care less about your feelings, they already demonstrated that. Time to let it go, for your emotional and mental health. You'll feel much better.

Have you ever faced this dilemma? How did you handle it. Did you keep your anger, nursing it hotter and hotter or did you let it go? How did you feel?

  1. I need to learn this lesson. It is one of the hardest things for me to do! I do hold on and on to something that really makes me angry or hurts my last feeling. Not little things or simple hurts or grudges, but the big things last forever. Maybe I need to frame this or print and tape to my bathroom mirror.

  2. This is a great quote! We're the ones who end up the most hurt when we hold on to things like anger. In many cases, the person may not even know how angry we are (or why!), and often it stuns them to find out we're still angry long after they've forgotten about an event. And if they're not even sorry for whatever they've done to make us angry, we'll never get satisfaction. LET GO and move on. It's the healthiest thing you can do.
