I’ve never understood why fighting anger with anger is always the first reaction of most people, myself included. I think that if someone is angry it’s because they’re hurt, confused or lost. Returning their anger with more anger is the same as dumping gasoline on a fire.
We’re too harsh on one another. Our self centered view point only allows us to see how another persons anger affects us. How it ruins our day, creates our own anger. What would happen if we were all just a bit gentler on one another?
Showing kindness to someone who shows us only anger is one of the best things I think we can do. Kind is the best thing to be, no matter the circumstance.
