“I am angry.” – truth
“You make me feel angry.” – false
“I am afraid.” – truth
“I am afraid because …” – false
It’s easier for me to be angry than to deal with my own anger. Almost always, when my anger gets triggered, the anger was already always there from long, long ago.
It’s not personal. The upset is an entity within myself waiting for an opportunity to come out and play.
Nobody makes me feel angry.
Nobody makes me feel afraid.
Only I can do that to myself.
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
