Fill your life with anger? Not
Wednesday, February 25, 2009
I took a class one time where we had some scenarios about cars racing around us, clerks not waiting on us and items like that. After we vented our anger and disapproval, we read the rest of the story.
Cars racing around us was someone trying to make it to the hospital where a loved one had been taken after an accident. If they hurried, they might make it to say good-by. Clerks not waiting on us was a new hire who was reading the store manual and was not allowed to wait on anyone yet.
We had many such stories.
Finally we all learned to think of the other person and what might be going on in their lives that made them act that way.
We learned also not to get those negative thoughts that led to anger.
Anger is stress and stress leads to weight gain, illness, and death.
If something happens and you can make it better, go for it.
If something happens and there is nothing to do, move on and forget it.
