Foolish Anger Has Destroyed Many Beautiful Relationships and Broke Many Hearts

He who angers you conquers you.
~ Elizabeth Kenny.

There is no living soul that is never angry, but only the wise one controls the anger.

Anger is not power.
It is wrath.
And does more harm than good.

More precious things have been destroyed and lost than gained in anger.

I am not saying you should not be angry, but only a fool is angry at being told the bitter truth.
If someone tells you the truth and you are annoyed, then you are evil.
Because the one who tells you the truth is better than the evil one who lies to you.

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
~ William Shakespeare.

You can know a good person by how the person reacts to truth.
If the person accepts it with humility and makes a positive change, then that person is a good and wise person.
But if the person reacts negatively, that person without doubt is a bad and evil person.
Be angry at what it bad and not at the truth.
As God said, only the truth shall set you free and not lies.

No legacy is so rich as honesty.
~ William Shakespeare.

Even if you are angry, don't chain your heart to it until it tears it apart.

When you drag your anger for long, it becomes a shadow of sorrow.
~ Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima.

Therefore, I advise you to let your anger be like when you cough that does not last longer than when you laugh.

Let me warn you that, it is a waste of time to pray to God until you repent of your anger against someone who has done nothing wrong but tell you the truth.
Call a spade a spade even if it hits you in the face than call it something else until it kills someone.

Anger often flies like a boomerang. So, be ready to duck when it returns to hit you. grin

Finally, remember the following warning about anger.
Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot that it do singe yourself.
~ William Shakespeare.

When you are angry with your lover or spouse in the house, throw harmless pillows and not blows.

Kisses make us beautiful, but bruises make us ugly.
So, do what will make you more beautiful.

The choice is yours.
