"Only tolerance and patience can protect us from the destructive effects of anger and hatred." - Dalai Lama
Anger and hatred create a vicious cycle that only creates more anger and hatred. Stepping away from those emotions and replacing them with patience and tolerance breaks that cycle and allows us to see things clearly.
The next time you feel yourself in a situation where you are beginning to get angry, take a deep breath and think about what your anger will do - will it solve anything? Can you channel that energy in a more positive way?
