Anger Management

Someone really irritated me today. I controlled myself, was civil and even managed a smile and rational replies. Right after that though, I felt myself short of breath, and with muscle tugs around my chest area. I had internalised my anger.

I remembered to pray about this time (ok not before ranting to one close friend). She prayed with me for peace. A while later, she emailed me this Chinese saying, wanting to cheer me up.

She's so going to kill me because I don't see what is so funny about this poem! Still, it is a handy little reminder so I printed it anyway and it is now up in my cubicle wall :)

Thanks dear for being there for me!

That Chinese saying wouldn't have worked on me either.

Sometime back, an idiot at work did somethng that pissed me off so much, I did something to vent (absolutely passively, mind you!) and the anger dissipated instantly! LOl.

I won't reveal it here lest I give too much of myself, and thus my identity away (I believe someone I know read this blog too). If you're keen to know, I can email you. Heehee.
