“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal
with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.”
The anger feels wrong.
I want to let it go but I can’t.
I can try to escape, but that won’t help.
No matter how far I run, I can’t run from myself.
I don’t want to run. There are people who need me.
Knowing that someone needs me makes me feel good.
I can’t help them if I’m angry but I can help them when I’m not.
I can think about their needs so I won’t be focused on my anger.
I know that I can help them, but first I have to calm down.
If I know how to help them, I can give them something.
Giving them something will also make me feel better.
I will be less angry if I’m not focused on myself.
Giving helps people I love and I want to help.
Giving helps me feel better.
I want to feel better.
I’m not angry.
It may seem backward, but giving can help get rid of anger. I hope this helps anyone who feels angry.
