This is so apt. Compassion dissolves anger. It is important to see the other person’s point of view too or understand where they are coming from, even if they are being a prick. It is more about us than them. Dissolving anger would give us peace of mind. That doesn’t mean that we/you/me agree with what they have done, it is just that we don’t want to be stuck in the rut of other person’s behaviour.
But. But. But. As I always think to myself, there has to be a limit to excusing someone being a prick. If they/that person is always getting away with their inexcusable attitude/ behaviour, we need to draw a line. For ourselves.
How long could we go on tolerating BS. Best would be to step back for our own sake.
