Anger: Anger is About Being Right

Here is a quote from Judith Hanson Lasater, a yoga teacher I very much respect. “We cannot become angry unless we believe we are right.” Is there anything to add to this one? Think about your own life and when you feel angry. It is true, isn’t it? You feel you are right. (I know, I know, you are thinking, “but I am!”)

Here is Judith’s recommendation: “Today when you feel irritated about something, breathe deeply and allow being right to melt into being present.”
