…In holding onto our pain, we hurt no one as much as we hurt ourselves. As Gautama Buddha once said, “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
…is to make the decision to be happy, to let go of judgements, to stop hurting others and ourselves, and to stop recycling anger and fear.”
