“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.”
Not only do you hurt yourself in the process of your retaliation, but you’ve no guarantee your effort will even result in that person being hit or burnt by the coal you throw!
Some are wise enough to step out of the way and avoid taking on what you’re tossing towards them.
Our actions are a reflection of ourselves, not our circumstances – he who has mastered himself has true freedom in choosing how to act despite how he may feel.
Have a lovely Thursday, xo
