I eradicate anger through empathy.
Anger has no place in me because I bathe myself in grace and use empathy. When I am tested, mercy flows through me toward others.
I choose to be patient, rather than to give in to anger.
My emotions are under the authority of love. I allow love to rule over my feelings and actions. My mind is trained to resort to love first before reacting.
By soaking in compassion and kindness, I soften my responses.
In situations when I feel myself growing angry, I stop and take deep, cleansing breaths. I picture the face of someone I love in place of the person upsetting me. By envisioning a loved one in their place, I immediately tap into my love reserves and find a way to respond with kindness. I give people a chance to prove or explain themselves before jumping to conclusions. By refraining from judging, I prevent myself from overreacting. I gather all the details about a situation before deciding on a course of action. I rid myself of anger by looking at things from others’ points of view.
Empathy gives me a better understanding of the motives and intentions of others.
I remove pride and selfishness from my actions so I can think clearly. Anger is the result of untamed emotions fueled by selfishness.
I tame my emotions in order to be an agent of peace and forgiveness, instead of anger.
Today, I choose to think positively in every situation. Rather than getting angry, I give others the benefit of the doubt and listen to their point of view first.
