“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Next time you are in an argument or a situation that you don't like - stop and sit still for five minutes.
For just five minutes hear what the person or situation has to say before you resist.
Let your awareness observe your thoughts before you believe them.
Maybe there is something to learn here.
That which infuriates or disturbs us has a lot to teach us.
