When people hurt or frighten us and the differences between us erupt in anger, we have an opportunity to practice and strengthen these qualities.
It is hard to stay quiet and wait. We want something to grasp in order to feel in control of our lives. Waiting is painful. In the lull, we are presented with all of our fears, and we have no choice but to feel and experience them.
Just taking a moment to decide how you will handle your less attractive impulses could mean the difference between finding Mr. Right and seriously freaking him out.
