I remember this feeling. I believe I can trace it back to the "wise fool" stage of college. Yes, I'm sure that is it. But for a different reason? Another man, yes, I think that's it. So why is she so angry about this? When I look at her I am reminded of my mother in only one way: the stubborness, the need for control over a situation. It's like breaking through a barrier without words.
It's your fault thus you must apologize.
I beg to differ.
What does anger get you anyway? Adds more stress to your life. And who wants that when you already have enough stress due to other various factors unrelated to this incident altogether?
You feel like the world is against you? Maybe it is, but only if you think it is.
If you say, "I don't like that person" then you won't like them, of course. It's simple logic.
Just because you think the world is against you does not make it so.
Just because you think someone did something does not make your theory of them doing it true.
We are all clear as to what that "assumption" phrase claims and it rings true, of course.
Don't judge me. Look at my role model. In fact, look at your own role model. Ha!
