When we feel that we've been hurt, offended, put down, dissed, or, you fill in the blank, how do we respond...or react?  I would never say that there is never cause in these situations, but how good would it be if our default pattern was to stop, take a deep breath or two, and seek to exercise our power of choice in responding?  

Does it matter, after all, what we say or do especially since it was "their fault" that I did what I did and said what I said."  

Ultimately, each one of us will have to decide about fault and no fault in every difficult situation we face, one thing is for sure, each of us is responsible, (response-able, that is, able to respond) and is, therefore, responsible for our own actions and words.  

Adding to this truth is the possible impact we put upon others by our negative reactions and rebellion against others.  That's the topic today as we look at the emotional results of our attitudes and rejection of others.
