The Anger Rule

Do not let anger get the best of you.

Let me share these quotes I copy-pasted from the internet some months ago.  I'm not sure of the website(s) though, I was just browsing to the many notepads I saved in my local drive and voila.  I think this came from Grey's Anatomy's quotes.

Anyhoo... read them and read well. :)
In life we are taught that there are seven deadly sins. We all know the big ones... gluttony, pride, lust. But the thing you don't hear much about is anger. Maybe it's because we think anger is not that dangerous, that you can control it. My point is, maybe we don't give anger enough credit. Maybe it can be a lot more dangerous than we think. After all, when it comes to destructive behavior, it did make the top seven.
And another one.
So what makes anger different from the six other deadly sins? It's pretty simple really, you give into a sin like envy or pride and you only hurt yourself. Try lust or coveting and you'll only hurt yourself and one or two others. But anger, anger is the worst... the mother of all sins... Not only can anger drive you over the edge, when it does you can take an awful lot of people with you.

Before you decide to let your mind be clouded by anger, think this:  What use will it do to me?  If I let this anger rule my life, what will I get out of it?  Will it bring a good night's sleep?  Will it make my world a happier place to live in?

Sure, you're only human.  Things provoke you to feel that way.  But just the same, you are human and you have the ability to rule over the emotions you have, you just have to use it.  Because after all, anger is but an emotion and emotions are just that, a state of mind.  The way you react to it, however, is a whole different story, and more often than not, the way you react to anger becomes the deadly sin.

Plus, getting consumed by anger does nothing but get in the way of a lot of good things in life.  You lose friends, you lose loved ones, heck, you sometimes lose family.  So what is there to gain?  Nada. None. Zero.

So man up, do not let your anger get the best of you.
