The anger

“For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
Psalms 30:5

2 - Reflect
When we experience feelings of anger or rage, we usually turn against our brothers. We shut ourselves in hostile thoughts, we have negative responses, or we show ourselves as arrogant and dim in front of those who genuinely want to help us. By putting our emotions at the center of the issue many times we will be making the situation worse than it truly is at the time. When we enlarge the issue that caused us to offend someone, our anger may last longer than it should, since we will remain spiteful and avoid evaluating the situation properly.

Expressing our discomfort with respect and talking with our brothers about what angers us will be the best option before it comes to that. Speaking with God about what happened to us and placing all the frustration we have experienced on Him, our Father will bear the burden and will offer us comfort and acceptance in return, so we may be able to forgive those who have offended us or it will allow us to accept that we may have been wrong and allow us to be compassionate with ourselves. Going to God when we are overcome by bad emotions, negative thoughts, or resentment will make us less harsh and with greater understanding. Only God will give peace to our spirit.
