I'm a very passionate Italian guy. When I was younger I would get so fired up at just about everything. My hands would fly up. My voice would get loud. My pitch would get high. Everything was at a 10 level. And not that being passionate is a bad thing but all this would happen because I would let the world get to me. People would make me feel bad, dumb, insecure, etc. Everything I did was react to what was happening around me. But the fact is that the no one around me or any situation can "make me" feel anything. I choose to feel how I want to feel. I choose to get mad. I choose to get pissed. I choose to feel dumb. I choose to be upset. Basically, I give everything and everyone maximum power over me and I just become the exhaust. This doesn't mean there are some bad and fucked up things that happen around us but why should I give my precious happiness, mindset, or energy to a situation that doesn't come from me?? Sure, if you mess something up then you might feel bad (at least a little) for yourself but that is YOU making you feel bad. Not someone else. Much of how we react has to do with how we "fill in the gaps" to the story. If we don't know everything then we will put in the worst possible stuff to complete the story. This usually makes a for a terrible situation and then we have a terrible reaction to it. Assumptions are toxic and even though it's very easy to take past experiences and use that to fill in the holes, we need to be careful about that. It might be completely wrong. And if it is, then we have a reaction to something that isn't even true. Have I completely fixed this for myself? No way, but I'm much better and I fight it everyday. Like everyone else, my life is complicated and I don't have the time or the energy to waste on stupid stuff. So I'll choose where my energy goes and I'll do everything I can to make my actions responses rather than reactions. Or at least try really hard LOL :)
