Eventually one just has to let go of anger. It’s a very corrosive emotion, and if it ravages unchecked for too long it leaves holes in one’s heart, holes through which all the good, happy emotions in life will leak.

I still get angry sometimes. I’ve had a lot to be angry about lately. A lot to be upset about. But I make an effort not to stay angry. It’s just not worth it. Anger renders the perpetually angry incapable of happiness.

And I am actively pursuing happiness.

Me too! It is a choice and I think a lot of people forget that. You alone are responsible for your happiness. And I’m glad to hear that you’re choosing to be happy.

Don’t let the anger of others hurt you either.

I will embrace the love, I will reject the corrosion.

Anger is best left to the pros.

I fear that sometimes I might be training too much in the way of anger.

Adrian Thursday March 29, 2007


Holes in the heart dude. Holes.
