It’s so much work holding on to anger. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. Every aspect of your life is impacted when you hold onto anger and resentment.
Some people cling to it like a life preserver. Almost like they need the anger to survive. Like they need the conflict in their lives otherwise they don’t know what to do with themselves.
That makes me sad because they don’t realize how much great stuff they’re missing out on. Makes me sadder that later on in life they’ll be even worse off with the guilt because of what they’ve done to people they love in their anger.
Don’t let that noose of anger tighten around your neck. Don’t let that temporary feeling of euphoria you get while paying back pain for pain consume you. Don’t let anger win.
Because in the end, you and those you love, ultimately lose.
