Able-ity

Insufferable
Tolerable
Irritable
Unbearable
Bearable
Acceptable
Agreeable
Enjoyable

I love these –able ending words because they reveal an important truth.

We feel only that which we are able (capable) to feel.

If we are in a good mood, can’t-nobody-get-me-down, we’re unable to be irritated.

If we are in a horrible mood and everything annoys us, it is because we have primed ourselves for this. We are irritable. It’s intolerable. Eventually we’ll move out of this space (well, most of us) and we can, for moments at least, be unstoppable, agreeable and enjoyable.

External conditions matter.

But we must remember they are all interpreted through our lens. Our own able-ity.
