Letting Go of Anger
"Let your anger set with the sun and not rise again with it."
How many times have you heard the advice to never go to bed angry? It seems simple enough, but when the situation arises, it is so tempting to be stubborn and wait for your loved one to take the first step. But if you both remain stubborn, your dispute will carry over into the next day-perhaps into the next week, the next month, and the next year. Be the proactive one-talk the problem out with your loved one. Any problem can be resolved if you both try. One will likely have to apologize, and the other will likely have to apologize, and the other will likely have to forgive. Or perhaps you both have some apologizing and forgiving to do. Just get the discussion started-you will sleep better, and tomorrow truly will be a fresh, new day.
IF I BECOME UPSET WITH ANYONE CLOSE TO ME TODAY, I WILL SIT DOWN AND CHAT WITH THEM BEFORE THE SUN SETS.
