With zero-based gratitude,
we would be grateful for everything we had each day -

the health, that I am blessed with today,

because we are attracted to the other person -

we tend to exhibit anger as well as fear.
We look for someone to blame for the dangerous situation,
and direct our anger toward them.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
