“Anger by a mature, reasonable person is a response to a real (or perceived) situation, dealt with, and then let go of. Anger by an immature, selfish person is a reaction to a real (or perceived) situation, assumes a "victim" stance, and then holds onto it as if it's a security blanket. A mature, reasonable person takes responsibility for the consequences of their actions. An immature, selfish person looks only to blame others - even stretching back to their childhood - just so they can say "see it's not MY fault!" Either state of mind is a choice. Not one choice, but a series of choices. And just because a person has made bad choices in the past, doesn't mean they have to continue. They can change when they finally decide to.” Coach William C. Smith
