There is a Buddist parable that basically says… If I buy you a gift, and you don’t accept it, who does it belong to? It ends up with the person who gave it right? The same can be said of anger. If you react in anger towards me, and I don’t accept it, then it goes back to you. If I don’t take on your anger… then the only person it really hurts is the one that initiated it.
Interesting how very often, the same that spout their hatred of “political correctness” also can’t really seem to handle a difference of opinion and view it as a personal attack rather than an opportunity to see something from a different point of view. Oh how we’ve been coddled in self-indulging individualism.
