It is all in your head

What you are is only a thought.

Did you know that nobody can make you feel anything. It is your thinking that makes you feel.

When someone does something that creates a negative internal response it is not a direct link between their actions and your feelings. There is one key component missing. Your own thinking.

Some one says or does something to you — whatever you think about that causes you have to a feeling. An emotional response. Whether it is good or bad is based on your own internal constructs.

Someone could do the same thing to a thousand people and get hundreds of different responses.

Most of our Ill thinking and faulty emotional responses come from expecting the world to behave the way we want it to. Demanding that it does.

When you see someone in the street that doesn’t conform to your standards you may think he or she shouldn’t act like that and negatively judge them. This is your own thinking disturbing you once again. Your own demands. If you didn’t have them you wouldn’t even notice them.

There seems to be a direct correlation between people who have demands on others having demands on themselves.

The way people tell others what they should and shouldn’t do is a direct link to their internal narratives.
