Todays Thought, Speak Your Mind

Thought for Today

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal
with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.”

~ Buddha

I have long believed that when someone angers you and you do not address this anger, it is you who suffers and not the one who angered you. Too often I am guilty of suppressing these feelings until I reach a boiling point, then I unleash these pent up feelings with the fury of a ravaging storm. Everyone then suffers; I suffer for the time I have suppressed these feelings; and the ones in the path of my fury suffer when I unleash them.

I suppose that I keep these feelings to myself for fear that I may hurt ones feelings, in the end my fury hurts even more. I am learning that it is more important to risk hurting ones feelings by expressing how I feel at that moment, than letting things build up to the point that I go into a ranting, screaming tirade that accomplishes little except more hurt feelings.

I have always had a deep fascination with words. Words are strong and powerful, they can build you up, or they can tear you down. Artistically crafted together, words can make you stop and think.

    games and they are mostly related to the adrenaline rush and
    also the excitement.
