You make me so mad!

I suspect most people have made a similar statement at some point, to someone they feel has given offense. It’s a case of assigning the cause of our own emotional reaction to another person. We may also assign the cause of joy to someone that has said or done something positive or uplifting. The same principle can be applied to our points of view regarding elements of life. That we so readily think our own personal emotions can be caused by others is mystery to me, though I am just as guilty as the next person. If you study the phenomenon without preconceived notions, you may discover that there is a great lie there. In order for someone to “make you mad”, you actually must create the anger within yourself first, then assign the cause to another. The same holds true of any emotion. Any joy you feel truly comes from within you, not an external cause. You are fully responsible for every one of you own emotions. If you take an honest look and find what I say has merit, you suddenly understand that you are solely responsible for all your anger, sadness, boredom, interest, happiness and any other emotion, including apathy.
