Really, I make you mad???
It’s a simple and very common phrase, but holds profound implications for our future peace of mind.
Is it possible for one person to force another person to feel a certain way without an express or implied approval… on your part?
How often have you heard (or said), “you make me so mad!“?
If we really have that kind of power over each other, then I want to run a simple test….
Everyone reading this, send me $100.00 right now… Go ahead and write the check and mail it…. Hmmm, seems I can’t force you to send me your hard earned money, how could I make you to change your hard earned thoughts?
It may be that, some people ignore their responsibilities (to be accountable) for their own thoughts, feelings and actions… only to put them on other people by saying “you make me…” Honestly, do you really believe other people can MAKE you mad?
Sure, sometimes people can do some really stupid stuff, but its not yours to deal with… unless you choose it to be…. then yes, other people can make you mad.
The downfall is, you have now given them power over you. Unless they show up with a picture ID proving they are God… You should not be giving any power (to anyone) over yourself.
It’s just a matter of only letting quality product (information) into your soul. When I eat good food, I feel better. When I think good thoughts, the same thing happens.
Proverbs 23:7 (says in part) “For as he thinks within himself, so he is.”
We have the option to choose what we let in…. just make sure it’s good stuff.
So, the next time you feel compelled to say “You make me so mad!”, take a deep breath, relax and think…. what are you allowing into your life to change your thoughts or feelings.
Mmm yeah, Its hard work, but worth it.
