Card For Today ~ Release All Anger

Release All Anger

Sometimes we find ourselves in a place of anger. Even when someone has treated us unkindly or has done something which hurts us, the way that we choose to react to it impacts us, either positively or negatively. While “giving them a piece of our mind” might be the initial impulse, it’s wise to collect ourselves so that we speak with dignity. Allowing ourselves to get overcome with anger brings us even more of the energy that we’d like to have avoided in the first place. This doesn’t mean that we allow people to treat us unkindly or abusively. It’s just a reminder that reacting in anger does nothing to diffuse situations, and it is damaging to our physical and emotional well-being. Best bet is to walk away and wait for the dust to settle. There’s nothing wrong with choosing to disconnect from people who are an unhealthy influence in our lives. To practice the best self-care possible, we should endeavor to let anger wash through us, rather than give it a home or allow it to pour from our mouths excessively or inappropriately.
