Do You Have a Short Fuse?

July 17, 2017


“Anger is not an expression of strength,” said Gordon B. Hinckley. “It is an indication of one’s inability to control his thoughts, words, his emotions. Of course it is easy to get angry. When the weakness of anger takes over, the strength of reason leaves. Cultivate within yourselves the mighty power of self-discipline.”

• Breathe.
• Let off steam by taking a drive, exercising, cleaning, etc.
• Understand your anger. What sparks it? What could you change about your outlook or situation to avoid it?
