The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Taking things personally

It’s easier to assume that someone is doing something because of us and against us than to accept that the other person didn’t think of us or had other plans.

Taking things personally thus becomes a way to deal with a sense of being powerless. It’s shifting out of fearing one doesn’t have the desired impact to being angry at someone else and regaining a sense of control through anger.

The human need for power appears in small things.
