Life is full of situations that can teeter one way or another. We can make a bad situation worse simply by not thinking things through.
Sometimes when we see a loved one, family or friend, hurting at the hands of another, we get angry right along with them. We might talk smack about the “wrongdoer”. We might suggest actions rather hastily. We feed the hurt. Things get ugly. But ugly doesn’t solve anything nor is it conducive to healing.
I’m not saying we don’t have a right to be angry. We can be angry. But anger needs to be bridled. Anger can destroy you from the inside out if you are not careful. Use that energy positively, not for revenge.
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger.
As hard as it is, we must minimize the ugliness by being mindful of the thoughts in our head and the words that we speak. Our actions affect all those around us. And it greatly affects the most innocent of all, the hearts of our children.
Minimize the ugliness. It’s the healthiest, most positive way to move forward.
Have an awesome second day of FALL! ♥️
