“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes angry.”
I had already had a post about anger, not because I am an angry person, but because I do make an effort not to be one. I do have a temper but I try to keep it under control.
The first one illustrates pretty much a philosophy I live by. When you are angry you are just taking time away from being happy. And yes I am a fool that believes that we can be happy all the time. Sure we need to learn about other feelings and that is normal, but I do strive for happiness. Saying fool made me think of Fools for Christ. My friend Sho introduced me to that. But that is another post all together.
Now the second quote, it is true, if anger dominates us we will be destroyed. Anger destroys us; another saying that is more popular folklore than a quote says that anger is just a letter away from danger. So how does anger affect your life? How has it affected it? Has anger been followed by regret? How do you conquer anger?
