I found this On Being broadcast very interesting. I've never studied Buddhism and so I found the ideas of how to deal with ones anger very fascinating. I have to admit that I hold on to my anger all the time instead of talking about it or just letting it go. I can say that when my wife and I get in to an argument, I sometimes bring up things that have happened in the past. I have a hard time letting those old things that have bothered me go. Perhaps if I studied Buddhism a little more, I'd be able to let things go a little easier.

I know from experience just how much people time people can spend being angry at others. Thankfully, my wife has pointed this out to me, and I have been working on it. I realize now that getting angry should not be my first response and that it can be a wasted emotion. Anger is something that can get in ones way of what they want. In this way, we can be our own worst enemy.
