    Here is a story as told by Dr. Wayne Dyer

    “If I were to squeeze an orange as hard as I could, what would come out?” I asked.
    He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, “Juice, of course.”
    “Do you think apple juice could come out of it?”
    “No!” he laughed.
    “What about grapefruit juice?”
    “What would come out of it?”
    “Orange juice, of course.”
    “Why? Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?”
    “Well, it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside.”

    I nodded. “Let’s assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you. And someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, says something you don’t like, offends you. And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear. Why? The answer, as our young friend has told us, is because that’s what’s inside.”

    It’s one of the great lessons of life. What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing—your mother, your brother, your children, your boss, the government. If someone says something about you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is what’s inside.

    And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.

    When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than your best response, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside.
