_Oversensitive...Getting your Feelings Hurt...Resentful...Suspicious of Others...Easily Provoked - just a few things that can cause you to become angry. Are there times when you get your feelings hurt and before you know it, you are becoming so mad, you start making rash decisions?
Keeping your feelings in check takes effort, but is so important. When you are easily angered...you will do things that normally you wouldn't do. These things can cause you so much pain and fill you with regrets.
Before you get your feelings hurt over something that has happened, rethink the situation and put yourself in their place. What was going on in their life that would cause them to hurt you...was it intentional? Oftentimes when we take the time to look back, we do one of 2 things. We either get angry or we realize that our being hurt was totally unintentional. Which one of these scenarios would cause you less pain?
Living in harmony with others means we have to put ourselves in their shoes...we have to learn to build up other people...not tear them down. We must show self control in our dealings with others...being careful to not get our feelings hurt easily. Have you ever heard the term...she wears her feelings on her sleeve? What a sad place to be in...never really loving others, but constantly worried about what others are doing to you.
Anger is like a poison in your life...don't let the poison of anger destroy your life.
