  5. Very good point – we are the only ones responsible for how we feel; if we chose to allow others to take control of our feelings then we give them the power.

    Of course – this is all easier said than done some days! For me, it takes a lot of practice and I use the experiences to help me grow as a person, to help teach me that I don’t have to accept the gift of negativity!

  6. Amen. You don’t have to be anyone’s 7/11 open 24-7 to receive their negativity.

  7. Great advice, excellent point!

  8. Excellent post – very true – we choose what we accept.
