This blog post inspired by this Daily Prompt: Mad as a Hatter Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry? 

Just for the record, what makes me angriest is when bright people use twisted thinking. I expect better of those gifted with the brains to think critically. However, as usual changing the prompt to serve my ideas.


Feeling awareness is a major emotional fitness skill and is often cited as one of the skills possessed by emotionally intelligent people.  It is a skill that can be learned and strengthened.  Feeling thermometers strengthen feeling awareness.
