Why do we insist on blaming others for the way we feel?


Reason would dictate that we are in control of our own thoughts and emotions. Why then do some blame others for how they are feeling at any given moment. For example, "They made me so mad!" or "I can believe you are making me feel this way..." My theory is that it is not us at all but rather our ego that likes to take on the roll of the victim instead of taking responsibility for the feelings, therefore, never fully identifying with the underlying reason for the behavior in the first place. Thoughts?
