“If you had to name one thing that repeatedly makes you angriest, what would it be?”
This question is from the book IF…Volume 2 by Evelyn McFarlane and James Saywell.
Keep in mind that the Bal Shem Tov taught that when we we see negative traits in others we probably have that same trait in ourselves.
Not utilizing potential.
seeing people pressure others to behave specific ways.
I don’t do that, so I do not think your lesson from the Baal Shem is 100%, but regarding other traits I can see how when something bothers me it might be something I do as well….
Not being “straight”
-before anbody flies off the handle I do not mean anything related to one’s sexuality.
Not seeing myself as others do.
(I think others have more faith and belief in my potential than I do most of the time.)
People who abuse their position of power and impose their will on the defenseless.
(e.g. people who hurt children)
Thanks for all of the responses.
