Ah....but you have to come to the realisation that you are doing just that.

Bitterness is also another big destroyer...again you need to come to that realisation....not everyone does....I believe many die being bitter....

Mine is:

"...With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy"

~ Max Ehrmann (from the poem "Desiderata")

I believe life experiences can make you angry and bitter, many reasons why some become angry and bitter,one needs the proper tools to deal with both.

I don’t believe a new born baby is born “ angry”.

Re: A Thought for Tuesday...

Some people don’t even know they are angry, their in ignorance...talking from ones own experience. ( mine).....

We all come from different backgrounds....some born into deep, dark ignorance, try wading your way out of that...if that’s all you’d ever known.

Don't know about born angry but I certainly don't hold with this nonsense about kids being born like a blank piece of paper. Kids inherit characteristics according to blood lines and race.

I can’t say what I want to say, re: new born babies.....because my faith will come into it..I left that outside the door, weeks ago, ..as it creates arguing....so I will leave it there.
