Life is lonely when you are always right

Insightful Times piece about anger and how getting angry does no good to one’s mental or physical health. It focuses on anger that fuels revenge. I struggle with this—thinking sometimes that it is my job to teach people a lesson. Even if revenge is successfully executed, the other person seldom thinks Oh wow, I was wrong. I shouldn’t have done that. They just get angry themselves, and it’s a never-ending cycle of revenge and fury. Letting it go is so much harder and so much better.
