Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when youpermit yourself to be disturbed by him.-- Epictetus (55-135 AD) Greek Philosopher
Remember that with boundaries, we control our own thoughts, feelings, and actions. If we let another person control our feelings (such as anger), then we hand over the control and reigns of our life. If another person controls our feelings, then they control if we are ever happy, or when we get over our anger. And THAT doesn't sound great, does it? I'm certainly not ready to sign over the power in my life to someone else like that.
