Hostility Hurts You

We are learning more and more that we are a whole person; body, mind, and spirit. Some of us have known this for a long time but the scientific world is just now catching up.
For example, if you have a toothache it affects all of you. If your foot is throbbing in pain the brain is distracted from other thoughts.
Also positive connections between people are a source of mental and physical well-being.
Even the Scriptures say, don’t let the sun go down upon your wrath.
Psychologists tell married couples not to go to bed angry.

Negative feelings are a source of mental and physical strain. Anger hurts you more than the target of your anger.

Brown Medical School doctors found that people with high levels of hostility were 6 percent more likely to suffer from heart disease.
