Daily Journey – October 14th: Don’t Get Mad. Help

Daily Journey

How many of us suffer through our own quite rage when others are “causing” us discomfort or angst. We would rather eat ourselves up inside then take any step to engage in finding a solution to the problem causing us to writhe internally.

I think this is because we can be addicting to anger and rage… and the addiction is easier to cope with then taking any actual steps to engage with other people who are acting in a way that we take offense to.

Take control of your own emotional well being and start taking action when you feel this anger creeping up from within. Don’t just gossip about it either… do something to help yourself by helping others understand your reaction to their actions.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
