Stepping Stones. . .
Buddhism teaches that directing anger at others doesn’t lead to anything positive. The best approach in heated emotional moments is to take a step back and pause the emotions to allow the moment to register within the mind. Take a step back and act with reason and common sense. You’ll thank yourself later.
We should use such moments as stepping stones in our own development. Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry, nurture a deep caring and respect for troubles because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience, which the world can always use more of.
