When you are angry, let it go, not just for a better future, but also because you’re a good person. And a good person isn’t angry most of the time. Instead, he sees beauty in the world and strives for a positive life, in which others around him can be inspired too.
When someone is angry at you, look at the situation objectively. Rather than immediately responding, sit quietly and check out your own feelings. If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have the opportunity to exercising self-restraint; to say and do nothing. If your behavior has been hurtful, the easiest and most efficient solution is to apologize.
Forgiving and letting go isn’t something you do for another person — it’s something you do for yourself. It offers you freedom, so embrace it in a healthy way.
You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger. ~ Buddha ~
Practice mindful awareness to take you out of your head and into the present. Notice the colors, sounds, smells, textures, tastes, and different feelings in your body. Anchor yourself to the Now by noticing what is happening all around you, every day of your life.
