Inspiring and Empowering Positive People
I've had plenty of opportunities to work on a weakness of mine lately. Lots of aggravated people trying to engage me in drama and conflict. I'm trying not only to not get drawn into pointless, energy draining conflict, but also to not less myself get worked up/pissed off.
I'd say so far my grade would be a B. I'm doing pretty good at not reacting and lashing out in response, but it still gets me upset and angry.
I'm trying to remember that when people are angry or aggressive, it's not about me, it's about them. They are upset for some reason already, and I happen to be the one there at the moment. Getting angry with them would be kind of like getting angry at a rain cloud for raining on me.
Anyway, that's what I'm working on, wish me luck :)
