Confused or Confusing?

What's the difference? Well, we use adjectives that end with –ed  to talk about our own feelings, or how a situation makes us feel. We use adjectives that end with -ing to talk about a person, a thing or a situation that causes those feelings. So we can say the following:

I’m usually confused with prepositions. Prepositions are confusing.

Look at these sentences:
  • My boyfriend has a very annoying habit. He's always late! I get really annoyed with him.
  • Our book is so interesting. I'm really interested in learning a lot of things.
  • The class was boring. I had no-one to work with so I was really bored
