Sometimes I get really angry about things I shouldn’t be angry about.
Last night was most certainly one of those nights. What I got mad about was justified, I had a very good reason for getting so upset but I felt stupid about getting so mad.
I was mad about something I had no control over.
I was mad about something that didn’t matter to the others involved.
I was mad about something that did not belong to me.
And that’s just stupid. Today I woke up this morning and decided not to be bitter.
Because if I decide not to be bitter I’m the real winner, I’m not letting those I’m angry with control how I feel. That alone is a success.
Plus negative emotions are literally so tiresome. They don’t do anything but bring you down.
So I will not be bitter, I will not let them hurt me.
Therefore I have won.
