Holding onto anger

We have a limited time here on earth. Life is too short to waste time ruminating on the past that won’t change, too short to hold onto grudges and choose to endure pain over the past you can’t change or people who you can’t force to change!

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Buddha

It hurts when someone has wronged us and we want them to acknowledge their faults and get an apology. However if that doesn’t happen, we tend to hold onto the pain and keep on focusing on the past which in turn leaves us feeling worse.

Being angry takes a lot of effort. It takes a lot of our being, our energy to maintain a bad mood. So, whatever we need to do to help resentment leave won’t be as traumatic as clinging to bitterness.

Here’s a lovely story to portray what happens when we hold onto anger
