July 12, 2021--Let the Fire Burn Itself Out
If you are triggered by something someone says,
expressing your anger may not be as helpful as riding it out
and taking time to understand what triggered you.
Then, you can take more responsibility for your anger.
You might even realize that it has very little to do
with what the other person did or said.
Every relationship has its explosive moments.
If you don’t pour gasoline on the fire,
the flames eventually die out.
But if you insist on speaking to others when you are upset,
don’t be surprised if the fire escalates
and begins to burn out of control.
