Turn your Pain and Anger Around
“If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.”Chinese Proverb
When we are disappointed or betrayed, we have all kinds of thoughts; revenge, anger, pity, feeling of incompetence, unlucky, and so on. We make a lot of resolutions about the situation and most times these resolutions are born out of anguish, fear, or even out of anger.
We feel betrayed and the hurt turns to hate which becomes the fuel, drive, and motivation for success. “I will show them, I will show them who the man is.” Anger may seem to be a good motivation but its cost is high.
Becoming successful just to prove a point to someone will leave you empty in the end. Time is not constant and so also people change.
Turn your Disapointment Around
Disappointments are sometimes good as they reveal our deepest thoughts and bring to bear our hidden pains but should we make those thoughts our life pursuit?
No! we should not allow our griefs to swallow us whole and leave us bitter but we should grief when we have to and pick ourselves up again and move on.
If you dwell on those disappointments, you will not be able to really move on. Free yourself from the shackles of vengeance tying and slowing you down.
Forgive yourself for the role you played when everything went south. Forgive also the person that caused you to grieve and set yourself free. Life moves on and so should you
Turn your pain and anger around
