Visitor, it's interesting to hear you mention anger and absorption of others' feelings. During 2015 I dealt closely with someone in business who is clearly prone to anger. Although it's passive aggression, I knew it and it was confirmed by someone who knows the person that he had a severe temper when young (and he was still relatively young). Anyhow, I found myself angry a lot in the period I was dealing intensively with the person. I was becoming aware that emotion and energy affects me and I cut off the working relationship. I had to. It's so interesting to put all these pieces together. I know what I have to do, intuitively, much of the time; but I think I will gain ever more resolve with clarity.
Cheers, S (also a visitor!)
