“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”
― Mark Twain
It seems like such a simple subject. We know that we should share the love, and yet we still get angry once in a while. Some people do so most of the time. It looks like the whole world is out there to get you: those crazy drivers on the road, people who cut in the middle of the line in a supermarket, or coworkers who get their promotions instead of you because of politics. We look around and see how people with half our knowledge and skills drive better cars, own bigger houses. How can you not get angry at this world where you get back stabbed by your friends and family, and some days you even think that the whole world has turned against you for no apparent reason….
I can definitely relate to everything I wrote above. That was me before I began my life transformation. My life turned by 180 degrees as soon as I changed one thing: when I replaced anger with love, everything started turning around in my life. My wife became nicer to me, my friends and business partners cannot get enough of me. In traffic people let me cut in the lane instead of cutting me off. People in stores let me go in front of them at the register if I have only a few items. I do not look for parking spaces anymore at busy malls in the cities; spots open up for me as soon as I get there. Everyone I meet is happy and friendly. I became a lot more understanding of people’s problems and do not see plots against me but instead something that I can help with. If someone I know is doing better than I am, I am truly happy for them, they appreciate that and do whatever they can to help me to get there to their financial level, so they can spend more time with me and do all the fun things that require finances.
I can only give you one piece of advice that transformed my life: change yourself and the whole world will start changing around you.

I love this post. We seem to live in a society where we are all so consumed by our own world that we no longer see what life is all about. You only have to step outside your front door or turn on the news to see the anger everywhere. Turning anger to love is the best way to understand yourself, before you can understand anyone else. Well done. You made me smile.
Glad to be of service :)

Well said. I, too, have found the power of love. It all boils down to choice. We can choose our mindset. I love the Mark Twain quote.
Thank you. Mark Twain was amazing personality so many good books and great quotes from a single man…
That was really good. Controlling and keeping anger inside won’t help so I was doubtful abt what to do and now I have the answer :-)
i often have this belief that what the United Nation needs to focus on is the issue of Love. Seriously most of the ills we face as humanity in every location possible on the planet Earth can be traced back to lack of love.
if i love i wouldn’t burgled other peoples properties neither will i kill or covetous or commit other ills
thanks for this
Love is emotion, when you approach things from place of love, you place your blessing on other people, and sometimes your worst enemy you can become a good friend
