Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Deadly Sin # 5…Wrath

Wrath…anger…rage – may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. Anger in its purest form, present s with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Feelings of anger can manifest in different ways, including  impatience, revenge, and vigilantism.

What has made you unleash your wrath? Have there been moments where it has been there lying under the surface, just waiting to come out from hiding? Yes, I have been guilty once again of another sin...anger. I have had anger creep up on me and have had to find a way to defuse it. Anger is not a good feeling to have. It is not a pleasant sensation to radiate…permeate through your body and mind.

It is like being possessed by something evil and not realizing it until it has left your body. Have you been possessed by anger before? Are you a Jekyl and Hyde?

I've learned to control my anger a lot more than when I was younger (and more immature); but sometimes it does still creep up on me. It's the worst when I try to ignore it and not bring it up, because like you said, it's never fun to be angry, but then it just festers. And when that happens, the outcome usually ends up being worse than it would have been if you'd just dealt with it initially. I hate that.
