You are not your anger. Your anger happens within you. You are more in how you hold and relate to your anger, than in the anger itself.

The same can be said for any emotion. You are more than your emotions.

Gaining mastery of one’s self involves learning to deeply be with your emotions, to be compassionate with yourself, to honour and express them consciously, with care for yourself and others and without losing awareness.

True emotional maturity is no small feat and requires ongoing commitment to oneself.
