Opening the blinds.
You try to let it go but you can’t so you hang on to it only to bleed.
You just want to give back one reply so that your anger receives some kind of satisfaction but one reply leads to ten more accusations on you and now there is more on your conscious to deal with.
You are more tangled, more frustrated and chances of peace are remote. Anger always keep you on defence mode which makes you appear more insecure and vulnerable to others and they continue picking on you.
As Lord Buddha once said, “ Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it on someone else; you are the one who gets burned”.
Let me tell you a story of the snake and the saw to help you understand the repercussions of anger and even if it doesn’t make you let go of it at least it will alarm you to seriously consider to let go of anger.
A snake entered a Carpentry Shop and as it was crawling it clipped itself with the saw lying on the floor. Out of threat he turned back and bit the saw and hurt himself badly in the mouth.
Then, not understanding what was happening to him and thinking that saw was attacking him, he decided to roll around the saw as if wanting to suffocate it with all his strength. The snake was not able to harm the saw at all but ended up killing himself.
This is what happens when in an impulse we thoughtlessly want to reply and get back to people who hurt us but we end up hurting ourselves.
Save yourself from pointless misery, useless overthinking and imagining or planning the chain of events in anger and get off the train forget what he said, she did. It’s not worth it.
Think about what you want not about what you don’t want.
I know to be the bigger person is not easy so I am not telling you to be the one just walk away with dignity without getting involved in small talk.
Don’t make bullies part of your memory and don’t drag your brain into an unnecessary tug of war.
Let your mind be calm and allow yourself to be happy and live your best life.
“As long as you know God is for you, it doesn’t matter who is against you”.
