Not going to bed angry sounds great in theory, but in the middle of a knockdown, drag-out fight or extended silent treatment, going to bed is a welcome escape. Falling asleep is another matter. Anger erodes relationships; it resides deep in a person €™s soul, affecting reactions, the ability to love and even physical health. Though often demonstrative, anger is also a hidden enemy, accumulating €śbottles €ť of dark thoughts and bitterness. Whatever the cause of anger, it can be overcome. If you or someone you live with are plagued by anger, learn how to resolve and forgive. Maybe you €™ll get a peaceful night €™s rest after all.
