Leave anger behind

When it comes, let anger get your full attention. Then even more quickly, let it go.

Time you spend being angry is time you’ll never get back. The energy you devote to anger, to resentment or frustration, creates nothing of value in your life.

When you give in to anger, you give up control. When you act out of anger, you’re letting someone else dictate those actions.

Let the anger inform you and motivate you. Then move beyond that anger before it hurts you, before it leads you to make foolish, costly choices.

Whatever has angered you, don’t make it worse by letting it dominate your awareness. Step back, take a breath, remember how much good you can do when you chose, and turn in a positive direction.

Feel your goodness, feel your values, feel the positive, creative power you possess. And leave the anger behind as you make the best of what’s ahead.

— Ralph Marston
