Wasting Time Being Angry

Ralph Waldo Emerson put it so well when he said, “For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” As a person who sometimes is known for being overly passionate, especially when angry, his saying rings so true. There were two people in particular who, when their names were even mentioned, would get me angry because of the nasty things they tried to do to me and my family.

Today, these same two people still try to say inflammatory things about me but I take a new approach which is best summed up by my little saying (not quite as eloquent as Mr. Emerson) “They are still pissing on me but I no longer get wet.”

Hold back the anger, let things slide off your back and relish in the good moments of life because before you know it, they’re gone.
