An Emotional Decision

By 26th November 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

Nobody can make me angry…I just become angry.
Nobody can make me frightened…I just become frightened.
Nobody can make me jealous…I just become jealous.
Nobody can make me hateful…I just become hateful.
Nobody can make me frustrated…I just become frustrated.
Nobody can make me confused…I just become confused.
Nobody can make me intolerant…I just become intolerant.
Nobody can make me sad…I just become sad.
Nobody can make me happy…I just become happy.
Nobody can make me myself…I just become myself.

If I stop doing the things that make me angry… I will become calm.
If I stop doing the things that make me frightened…I will become confident.
If I stop doing the things that make me jealous…I will become respectful.
If I stop doing the things that make me hateful…I will become loving.
If I stop doing the things that make me frustrated…I will become contented.
If I stop doing the things that make me confused…I will become decisive.
If I stop doing the things that make me intolerant…I will become patient.
If I stop doing the things that make me sad…I will become happy.

If I stop doing the things that make me want to give up on life…life will become rewarding.
I f I stop trying to be someone else…then I will become myself.
If I become myself…then I can be all that I hope to be.
