Not allowing suffering to spill over

From Anger, by Thich Nhat Hanh:

When someone does not know how to handle his own suffering, he allows it to spill all over the people around him. When you suffer, you make people around you suffer. That’s very natural. That is why we have to learn how to handle our suffering, so we won’t spread it everywhere.
