      Have you ever heard someone say she/he made me get angry?

      Getting angry is a choice every time.
    It may only take a millisecond but we go through a thought process every time before we get angry.  Every time.

       Take for instance I walk over and clinch my fist and hit you in the face, arm or any part of your body.

      The first thing entering into your thought process is that an old man has just walked up and hit you.
      The second thing would be,  how hard did  that old man hit you.
      You might pick yourself up off of the floor very angry with me.
      OR  you might still be standing there looking at me, laughing at me because your baby sister hits harder than I do.

       You chose to become angry or you chose to laugh out loud.

      Every emotion that we have is a choice that we make after a thought process is completed, regardless of how fast that thought process is completed.
    Every time.  Every emotion.

    Getting angry is a choice and being happy is a choice. However only too an extent. I do believe that we have the power to fully control our emotion and be happy and positive 100% of the time with practice. The key is too push positivity into our subconscious and cast those negative thoughts out. Then we are in total control!
