An acquaintance proudly declared to me recently of her ability to let go of her anger upon anyone and everyone who came across her path. ‘Once released I feel so much better and I never feel a grudge’ Whoopy doo !!
I listened and observed silently her triumph; sadly there was little point in speaking to her of the damage she did to each and every person who was subjected to her wrath. It is absolutely pointless to try to open the eyes of one who does not wish to learn, and therefore I remained silent rather than bring her attention to less damaging ways of dealing with such powerful emotion.
It is a great pity that the words ‘what goes around comes around’ are completely disregarded that is, until we hear the same angry person whining, unable to understand why she is the recipient of so much anger. Oops! It is time to look at your life methinks.
