Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 360 – Anger To Giving

“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.”

— Buddha


I’m angry.

Angry tiger

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.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
