‘Three minutes of anger will sap your strength quicker than eight hours of work. When you are angry, your blood rushes to the major muscles of your arms and legs. Thus, you have greater physical strength. But your brain, lacking its full blood supply cuts down your efficiency. That is why you say things you do not mean and do things which seems outlandish.’ – ANONYMOUS
Let’s face it, we can get angry at times. We tend to do ridiculous things because our reasons or thinking is clouded by intense emotion and before we knew it, the damage has been done.
I’ve been angry these past few days. And believe me, it is tormenting and exhausting. I can’t even sleep well. One night, when I really cannot put myself to sleep dealing with the pain, disappointments, and frustrations I stumbled upon the quote above. That quote hit me big time, its message struck me straight in the heart and reached the depths of my soul. Truly, anger is a vicious killer, it does not only disable our ability to make the right decisions but it also kills our well being. Thank God, with His help and mercy, I was able to hold on to my reasons not allowing hatred to consume me.
How about you? How do you deal with anger? I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment. That’s it for our 16th week of ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘. Happy weekdays!
The best way to lose your temper is to lose yourself in GOD!
