Because I've been doing Taiji for awhile, I've forgotten (and have taken for granted) how stable I have become in my emotions and moods. However, I do get reminded of emotional swings and loss of control when I see other people less fortunate. There was a time when I was much more volatile and things would upset me easily. Perhaps getting older, being a better person, taking better care of yourself, maturing etc all play a part in becoming less "reactive and at the mercy" of situations we encounter in our lives? But I believe that over time as you practice more seriously and regularly, your emotions are changed for the better. This is reflected by other (but not necessarily all) serious practitioners I know of. More balanced and calm, open and accepting, self-reliant & happier. Eventually less anger and aggression. It also helps if you genuinely ponder the principles of Daoism. It doesn't mean that serious practice of Tai Chi will convert you into some Daoist monk who is an island unto him or herself but it sure helps.
These are my thoughts about various aspects of Tai Chi. They may or may not be original and I try to give credit where credit is due.
