Discover Your Truth Unearth Your Soul
In a way I think it is easier to be angry than calm, peaceful and loving. It is easier to be angry because it takes away the feeling of being afraid and places it on the back burner. Everything , everyone, every situation has the potential to make you angry, when you are looking at the world through angry eyes. The source of anger is internal, your anger lies deep inside you like a dormant volcano ready to erupt under the proper circumstances or it bubbles just below the surface and pops out at the most inappropriate of times.
It is a true test of your will to remain calm in volatile situations, where you are being targeted, seemingly prosecuted, judged or arguing. If someone walks into a room and angrily yells at you, understand you have a choice, you can get angry yourself or remain calm and peaceful. If you choose an angry response then you have let the other person infect you, you have given up control of your own self, you have allowed the other person to lead you on a string like a puppet.
But how can I let this situation, this person, this thing go without feeling the anger? I find that understanding for your fellow human being and living in the moment works best. Understand that the person yelling at you is really yelling at themselves, they are projecting their own insecurities on you, they have no right to judge because none of us are perfect. If you keep finding yourself in the same situations, then it is very simply, choose to do things another way, even a move as simple as walking away instead of sticking around to listen to an angry person yell, might mean this time you won't come to blows out of anger.
If you are angry, then you are not in control of yourself. Your self is just about the only thing you have control of in this world so don't give that power to anyone else.
