Why do we let things affect us so much?

Emotions seem to be out of our control. But they truly aren't. There is a reason behind every emotion you have, and you've brought it upon yourself. You are NEVER a victim to emotion. You've agreed with what you're going through, you have accepted it as truth, as regular, as you. But if you realize that everything is based off of your belief system, you can alter those systems to offer you better ground for decision making. Sometimes it feels like someone's words have physically wounded your heart -- the words contradicted everything you stand for. The physical pain is a direct result of you taking something personally, letting it "affect" you. But they're just words! Or it was just an action! Nothing touched you, nothing penetrated you ... but your thoughts are making you feel awful, aren't they? Depression is so common because we pile on all of this non-physical "disagreement" and let it build up until it's weighed us down so much we can't get ourselves to move! We're physically negatively altered from this unreal, transparent energy.

Thing is I don't know how to control this myself ... I've gotta alter all my current beliefs so that nothing affects me and I can stand on my own. Hard to do.

The book I was talkin about in my last post has blown my mind repeatedly. I love how things line up to coincide with what you're reading. If you're contemplating time, the answer will be shown in the book. If you wonder about past lives, the book will confirm what you were thinking. Oh the joy of reading!

Most important and beneficial phrase in the whole book is, "The present is your point of power." No matter what happens, no matter what the circumstances have been in your past or where your future seems to be headed, your present is where you change all of it. Belief systems have been huge for me: disecting every little thought that goes through my head and wondering if it's the way I want to feel about myself, or about the world around me. Your world is completely filtered through your consciousness, so you can't blame anyone, EVER, for what happens to you.

It's all you, baby.
