> Hi Gabbi,
> You make good points, and to some extent, this is really a semantic argument. I suppose my challenge to the idea of "make me feel" is more from a stance versus parsing out cause and effect. It feels to me to be a more empowered stance to know that *I* am reacting versus *you* (metaphorical you) are causing me to act.

Hey GG.
It does doesn't it. I really wasn't trying to make points, honestly trying to understand.
I'm confident that I am responsible for how I act on my feelings, but not always my feelings themselves. For now that's empowering enough.. maybe I'll work on it more in my next life because I'm tired already.
