The Experience of My Experience

You might have had a difficult day.  Someone said something at work that really hurt your feelings.  Or a family member said or did something that made you angry.  It’s all their fault, right?

NOPE.  The truth, whether we like it or not, is that no one can hurt our feelings, and no one can make us angry.  It is always our reaction to an event, very often based on what happened years or decades ago.  We used to call it “pushing our buttons,” but whatever you want to call it, you (and I) have absolutely responsibility.    The good news is that because it is our trip, we can change it.
