There are some basic facts about anger that you should know. Here is one.
“Of the seven deadly sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds,
to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect
of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you
are given and the pain you are giving back – in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback
is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.”
(Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking, 1973)
Anger has a price.
It is your choice, of course, whether or not you will decide to let it have its way with you. But make no mistake – there is a price, a payment that is required.
