Anger is like poison destroying our peace. It raises our blood pressure, damages our heart and immune system, and generally destroys our physical, mental, and spiritual health. So learn to identify early signs of anger – feeling out of balance, irritable, frustrated, jittery, etc. Apply the antidote when these early signs arise. Think – the other person is not happy because happy people are not provocative. Why is she/he not happy — relationship, health, or financial issues maybe? Just thinking this way dissolves the early anger allowing it to transform into understanding, patience, and even compassion.
