expectations (demands) that we hold for the actions of others.
We "know" that there is a right way to do things,

have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

not necessarily those who agree with you,
but those who respect your right to your point of view.

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.
Anger is an instinctive response.

But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

No individual has any right to come into the world
and go out of it without leaving something behind.
