The 5th one is a point to ponder on... thank you Bears. I'm going to reconstruct my past with this.

I love #5!!!!!!! They are all GREAT!!!!!
BUT BUT BUT!!! WHAT ABOUT..... um... yeah great quotes. I would have disagreed strongly even a year ago with all but number 4. So much is behind each statement. Easy to misinterpret for anyone new to Option. Seems like I read a book about these things somewhere... Oh yeah! "Happiness is a Choice." LOVE YOU BEARS!
I am living in your classes though i am far away,,, happy to share on #5, ""Anger is a request for power from someone feeling powerless."

I love Jackline's thought about reconstructing the past in the light of anger being a request for power. It's weird that adults get angry with tiny children and feel powerless when faced with a two year old. I remember people being angry with me when I was that small but never before thinking that they felt powerless in their interaction with me, add in the violence to their anger and wow, I must have been some two year old for them to feel that powerless : )
