We make our selves angry

Most people assume that anger arises from something outside themselves such as frustrating events or other people’s actions. With some reflection we come to realize that no one makes us angry. We make our selves angry. If we do not have the seed or readiness to become angry, external circumstances will not make us angry. His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech said that “when reason ends, then anger begins. Therefore, anger is a sign of weakness.”
