The wisdom of the Buddha reminds us that how we respond to anger can be just as important as the anger itself. When someone is angry, it can be tempting to flare up in response, but it takes a lot of patience and self-control to remain calm and respond in a constructive way. When we can do that, we have won a battle that can be difficult to win. By not allowing ourselves to be drawn into a conflict, we are able to maintain our composure, keep our relationships intact, and even potentially find a solution to the problem. Ultimately, it is important to remember that the way we respond to anger can have a greater impact than the anger itself.
