“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.” Maya Angelou
Bitter, angry people are vile hateful creatures who drain the life out of anyone who goes near them. Bitterness is a disease, like cancer, which eats away at your soul.
Anger is even worse. You can’t focus or think clearly when your angry. While bitterness slowly eats away at your soul, anger is instantaneous. Anger allows you to do things which you’ll regret for the rest of your life. Anger shuts down your thinking and reasoning process, allowing you to kill your soul in an instant. The angry father hits his son. The angry mother shakes her baby. The angry lover has a one night fling.
Leave anger and bitterness to the parasites of the world. Leave it to those who are so filled with both that they are dead inside. You can make a choice. You can let someone else manipulate you, make you bitter and kill off a little bit of your soul each day. You can let them make you angry, you can let them make you do something you’ll regret the rest of your life.
Your third choice is to let the anger and bitterness destroy the other person by remaining calm, cool and collected. Rather than bitterness, show them tenderness and mercy. Rather than anger, show them happiness and good nature.
How you face situations defines who you are. Reason things out! Stay calm and the proper course of action will come to you. You will go much further in life, in your goals, by not allowing others to make you angry or bitter. You will be a much happier person, causing those around you to be equally happy. You’ll be able to reach the stars!
