In Buddhist teacher Tara Brach's most recent podcast about anger, she quotes an African tribe: "Vengeance is a lazy form of grief." Today, notice that under your anger is grief for some loss or potential loss. Before you take any action or speak any words or get caught in rumination or righteousness, notice your sadness or fear. Tend to those feelings with kindness and compassion. Then, you will be able to act with more wisdom.
