“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” ~Mark Twain
Allow me for one moment to question you. How much baggage are you carrying? How much anger and resentment burdens you daily? How much of your life passes you by because you can’t see beyond the past? Are you really being your whole self if you are weighing yourself down with unrequited emotions and unresolved issues? I’ll answer that for you, NO.
The art of letting go is one not easily mastered, but it can be done, persistence is key. We never really realize the damage holding on to anger, sadness, bitterness and old feelings does to the vessel that is our body. (this includes your mind, your health and your spirit) An angry person harboring ill feelings towards another is counterproductive. The person you are angry with, more than likely does not know you are angry or does not care and is living unbothered. You on the other hand subconsciously are being controlled by said anger and unbeknownst to you this affects your mood, attitude and disposition. What quality of life does that bring?
“If you’re unhappy with anything, whatever is bringing you down get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.”~Tina Turner
