No one else got your memo about the way things should be done, how they should treat you, or how to live their lives by your standards and beliefs.People often get angry because someone violates their deeply-held ideals.For example, I may compare myself to Ironman Champion and Olympian Matt Fitzgerald and determine he’s a better triathlete than me. Looking at only a small fraction of a whole person and ranking that part against yourself is a pointless activity.
Holding a grudge has about the same logic as drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. The person who criticized you is probably having a great time without giving you a second thought, while you waste your life sending them death rays with your mind.While money certainly is a great gain in this life, it doesn’t bring happiness.Think about how you would feel if tomorrow was your last day to breathe.They believe that they can control everything very well and things will just turn out exactly what they planned. You would certainly need superman’s strength to pick up that weight.However, the reality is that we don’t have the ability to control anything else other than ourselves.
