#210 – Holding on to your anger is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die. – Buddha

 Holding on to your anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else but  you are the one who gets burned.  It helps me to try to change my thinking to something, anything more pleasant so I don’t waste my time giving free rent in my head to someone who has upset me and who I cannot do anything about.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.

      It’s always a struggle to get control of my thinking too but I also remind myself thatthe person I am obsessing about is fine because if they weren’t they would change, so it’s me who has the problem, not them. Anyway, good luck. Life gets easier as you get older. Sandra

      Anger is hard to get rid of, but nice to remember the person you are hurting the most, which is you.

      I don’t even remember. I do remember reading it somewhere and thinking how true and how ridiculous to clutter up your mind with things you can do nothing about. Especially since it’s basically something you’re doing to yourself that makes you miserable.
