“We are not the cause of other people’s behaviors, we are only the witness.” —The Mind Plug
Keep in mind the stark fact that one person cannot make another person “feel” anything; we do not have control over each other’s internal condition. That ability is not taken but it is relinquished, most often unconsciously.
WhenEVER feelings come into play they are wholly the responsibility of the actor (the person experiencing the emotion and then taking the action) even if it is in REaction to another.
Now if through inaction another person is not made aware of an individual’s personal BOUNDARIES (because that individual did not express them either sufficiently or at all) THAT’S where the issue begins.
