Response to retrowire (Original post)

10. I'm going to try this again. Very few people get this point.

 

Friend of main called Ziggy used to say regarding the guy who cuts you off in traffic. "He didn't piss you off, he just drove his car in a certain manner. The anger comes from within you. To deal with that anger, you don't need to deal with him, you need to deal with yourself."

You believe certain things about how you should eat. That's your business. Other people might not agree. That's their business. You express your beliefs, they express theirs.

Your expression of your beliefs does not piss them off, why should their expression of their beliefs piss you off? Because they didn't say it politely? That's their bad, not yours. Because you disagree with them? If so, then your beliefs should piss them off.

Something is going on within you that is causing the anger. That's what you need to look at.

Feel free to tell me I'm wrong and continue to blame others for your anger. Most people do. A few people hear what I'm saying. Those people usually let go of their anger and live happier lives.
