Anger

Ralph Waldo Emerson said

“For every minute you are angry

you lose 60 seconds of happiness.”

 

I believe this to be true.

 

The people in my life know that I rarely stay angry.

I find anger to be an exhausting and useless emotion.

Far more destructive than instructive.

 

To be angry is to lose time

precious time

being righteous

about whatever it is we feel we were wronged about.

But at the end of the day how worth it is it?

 

In this world that is often cold

how warm does your anger keep you?

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.

  1. One of the wisest post I’ve read since I started blogging. Anger and grudgs are a big waste of time. And the only person who it hurts is the angry person who harbors these negative energies inside them. Thanks for sharing this wisdom.

  4. Oh, this has hit a nerve. 😦 How does one simply not hold onto anger? I feel a little stuck and I really do not like it.

    • I’m not sure of the right answer to that. For me, I just have never been able to…but I suppose that it really comes down to doing what is best for you, not the other person. How does is make you feel? If you’ve made your point, said your peace then I would think that there isn’t anything else to do but to move on. I’m not sure that that is helpful to you though…
