I am determined not to speak when anger manifests in me.
I will practice mindful breathing and walking to recognize and look deeply into my anger.
I know that the roots of anger can be found in my wrong perceptions and lack of understanding of the suffering in myself and the other person.
I will speak and listen in such a way as to help myself and the other person to transform suffering and see the way out of difficult situations.
Thich Nhat Hanh
