Negative emotions such as anger, frustration, resentment, and disappointment are often a result of internal factors rather than external circumstances. When experiencing these emotions, it's important to recognize that there is something within ourselves that needs attention. It's like driving with a dirty windshield - the dirt on the lens distorts our perception of the outside world. The responsibility lies in cleaning our own lens first before blaming external factors. People often make the mistake of thinking that expressing truth means blaming others and trying to control them to avoid triggering negative emotions. In reality, this approach only reflects our inner struggle with feeling safe and secure, leading to attempts to control external circumstances.
