In the future we’ll learn that anger is a disease related to depression and there will be a cure for this medical bias. For right now — like people who gain weight easily — you just have to deal with it. The first step is realizing that you can deal with it.

How mad can you be over a $5 problem? Think, “Look, there’s going to be a terrible period where I’m miserable & act out & ruin my day & the day of those around me, & then I’ll accept it. Why not accept starting now or do something constructive?”
