Hello Graceful Forgiver!
January 22, 2016
Today we will talk about anger. The real root of anger is an unmet need or expectation, and all it really means is that you need to have a conversation. This could be a conversation with yourself or with the person who you are angry at. The point is not to lash out at people, but to further understand your needs and theirs. Oftentimes we may be in situation where we are wanting a specific need to be met, but the other person also needs that need met. This can lead to anger, frustration, hurt, and maybe even hate if you allow the feelings to fester.
Finding ways to meet our own needs or finding people who are willing and able to, we can begin to release our expectations on the other person. From the wise words of Master Yoda : “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” If someone has hurt you, or left you hanging, find a way to let it go. Holding on to anger and hurt, or coming with ways to get back at the other person, will not help you in the long run.
Do your very best to find forgiveness, understanding, and compassion. This will allow you to move on with your life in peace. Learn from the situation, and do whatever it takes to move past it. In the long run this will make you stronger and more resilient, and it will also help you know more about your needs, and the people you need to associate yourself with to get them met. Remember to always look at the bright side!
