Motivational Monday ~Anger~

Anger is the most impotent of passions.
It effects nothing it goes about, and hurts the one
who is possessed by it more than the one
against whom it is directed.
~Eward Hyde Clarendon~

Do I get angry?  Of course!  I think anger can be a positive thing when it is used constructively.  But to hold on to a grudge while keeping the anger bottled up inside is very unhealthy.  I know this first hand.  At any given time during the day, I have found myself suddenly thinking about someone from my past and everything this person did to hurt me and my family. I would  think about how I would confront them if we were to ever meet face to face again.  Family members would avoid bringing up this person's name around me because they knew how I would react.  As I grow older I am finding that being angry about things out of my control is just too tiring and time consuming.  It not only affects me, but those around me as well.  So now I have chosen to let things go and just enjoy life.  Things are much more pleasant this way.  Wow!  Who would have known that growing older could bring such knowledge?
