If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.

about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.

who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
