I had this post up on my Instagram sometime ago and upon request👇, I decided to bring it here.
Sometimes it shocks me when I see how easily some people get angry.How easily they let their emotions drive their lives. How easily they let other people or situations get a to them.
Everything makes them tick. It’s not bad to show how you feel but do not be overwhelmed with anger.
A lot has been born out of Anger; injury,broken relationships, marriages, murder and even suicide. All these because you allow Anger.
I’ve seen a lot of people around me react at the peak of anger and make really wrong decisions that hurts them and those that love them.
A lot of people ask if the part of my brain that controls anger is missing ’cause I never let it happen.
Over the years I can count the number of times I’ve gotten angry and what’s more?
I never react to this feeling of rage because I’ve learnt never to react when this emotion tries to take over and this makes it hard for it to even go beyond the minute.
Its not a super power.
Its a self conscious, intentional effort.
You need to propose in your heart to stop letting anger drive u.
I’m not saying don’t react when you’re pushed…
But don’t let it overcome your sense of reasoning
My Mummy says when you’re angry count 1-100, before you’re done you’d find out it’d have subsided and then logical reasoning would take over.
Walk away if you have to.
Sleep if you have to.
But never let anger have its way.
The bible corroborates this
Proverbs: 16. 32. He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city
Let’s live an Anger free Life. Try and remain in control all the way.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.
