"My beloved brothers, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger." - James 1:19
I can admit that sometimes my anger has controlled me. Anger has made me say and do things that I later regretted. It took years for me to realize that anger was purposeless. It served absolutely no one. In fact, it took more energy to hold on to anger than to simply let it go.
I can also confess that choosing to forgive, is a lot harder when you are furious. But in the end, my serenity gained a little more shimmer, when I chose to release my anger.
Why You Mad?
Have you ever met someone who is always unhappy? Normally, anger will decide to make a house a home if you refuse to give it an eviction notice.
In the midst of anger lies a trail to its birthplace. Find the source, cut its head off and glide into the sunset. Neglecting to identify the source, will prove to be extremely harmful to your life.
So again....Why you Mad?
What is causing pain in your life? What is keeping you from letting go and moving on? Ask yourself these questions.
It Ain't About You
If you are waiting for someone to apologize in order to be happy, pitch a tent, because you might be camped for a while. Waiting to be happy...waiting to let go....only prolongs your peace. Get your peace now. Time waits for no man, so as we run down the clock, who has time to wait to truly be happy? It's not about you, its about your divine purpose. And you cannot operate in your purpose, if your mind is only focused on anger.
Bitterness or Prosperous?
Do yourself a favor and chose to be brighter than your animosity. There is no inferiority associated with letting go. Because in the end, the last laugh comes from the person who has chosen to prosper, rather than hold on to resentment.
Heal because it's bigger than you.
