What's really behind all that "meanness"?

I'm really into discovering what makes people tick and what makes them react the way they do.  On a good day, I'm unflustered by the behavior of others because I understand that there's almost always an underlying cause.  On a regular day, I'm reacting to that poor behavior just like the next person out of my own buried issues and emotional baggage.

I'm blogging over at Plaid for Women once a month, so head over here to read more on having compassion and understanding for those around us.
