Do you struggle with getting angry at life, yourself or others?
I get it. Sometimes anger isn’t as blatant as yelling. Often it looks like irritability and people report when they are around someone who is feeling this way, they feel like they need to walk on eggshells around them.
No matter the cause of these feelings whether it’s physical pain like I’m struggling with due to a knee injury, entitlement (wanting things to go our way), a quick temper or unrealistic expectations, the cure is compassion. I love how many times in Scripture it talks about Jesus looking upon people with compassion. It’s something we all need to receive and give to others as well as ourselves.
Today, I hope you find compassion for someone in your life who might be grumpy even if that’s you.
