Is There Invisible Anger in Your Heart? Anger destroys love and compassion. We are more likely to commit the 7 deadly sins when we are feeling angry. By being angry, we lose the best party of humanity and we end up saying and doing things that present the worst possibility of ourselves or even the worst possibility of human beings. Anger stains our beautiful soul and “give the devil a foothold” (Ephesians 4:27).
There consequences to anger, ranged from insomnia, headache, heartburn, stress, anxiety, overthinking, emotional disorder, chronic, depression, apathy, or even the idea of revenge.

As to my observation, those who are broad-minded to people’s rudeness are more likely to be insensitive to their negation emotions. They are the ones who tend to escape from their negative emotions.
As we try to escape our duties or disturbing emotions, we might go for emotional eating or something else for the sake of distraction. What is more common, people arrange tight schedules every single day including the weekends to escape their negative emotions such as pain or sorrow.
As there are anger and bitterness in our heart, we get irritated more easily than we should.
The next time you get angry, pay attention to your facial expression, your tone and words. Do we say something hurtful and cruel when we get angry? Are we doing justice to others when we get angry?
Confidence in ourselves makes us strong. One day, when you are able to augh people’s ridiculous remarks off, it means you are impregnable inside. Don’t let anyone take away your smile, energy and elegance.
Paul exhorts believers to forgive others just as God has forgiven us. We should never forget that we were the ones who made mistakes before.

I believe that many people carry the invisible anger inside. It’s a commonplace thing that we force ourselves to be strong again for our loved ones but we never truly pass the pain or anger in the past.
I heard some malicious statements like everyone. As I heard those humiliating statements, didn’t defend myself and I didn’t clear the air either. I was the one who was dread of any possible conflicts or arguments. Nevertheless, I was unwilling to let it go by keep reciting those insidious statements in my head again and again.
I came to realize that there was some bitterness which I buried my deep down in my heart.
The truth is that I did not want to forget that anger. I memorized it so hard because I want to accuse them.
I aimed to expose their wickedness. But I didn’t and I never able to let myself do it. I was trapped by the idea of mercy and forgiveness. I was trapped by the idea of “the subtle difference of stating the fact of a terrible person and speaking ill of others.”
I came to realize that If I harbor bitterness in my heart, it’s much like chronic suicide. By being angry, we lose our concentration, time and energy without awareness or not.
Is it worthy to carry the fault of others in our brain for a lifetime? We knew the answer.
If we want to embrace a better future better, we shouldn’t carry bad memories day and night. Never. It will be a huge burden. It will do us nothing good.
If everyone is being kind to everyone around them, it must be a better world. The sad truth is that I have seen so many people become the person they hate after they have been attacked or bullied.

The ability to forgive is the ultimate demonstration of an impregnable inner self.
Unforgiveness shapes restless souls. The ability to forgive allow use to live our life as we used to be with a peaceful mind. Those who fail to forgive others are devoid of a sound sleep and permanent peaceful mind.
