Not all anger is bad. We should never put up with exploitation or abuse, and our impatience in that regard is a healthy warning signal that our limits have been violated and we need to seek a safe haven.
When we employ patience, we are much better judges of when it is time to rise up in righteous anger and when we should grin and bear something.
Thereâ€™s an Irish proverb that goes something like this: â€œWhen you are angry, youâ€™re carrying the burden while the other person is out dancing.â€ The more we cultivate patience, the less anger we carry and the more dancing weâ€™ll feel like doing.
