Do you get markedly upset if someone says something you don’t like or don’t agree with? Do you let them know that you don’t like what they said? If you do, I suggest that instead, you simply…observe. Sit back, and silently observe what they said, and the reaction that took place inside of you. You have no obligation to judge their comment or teach them a lesson at the expense of losing your cool. If you lose you composure every time someone says something that you don’t like, can you see how they are controlling your behavior? I would like you to get to a place where nothing can disturb your peace, and no one can change your emotions/behavior, except you. Of course there are injustices in the world, and we cannot remain silent about wrongdoing. And there are those individuals that are hurting and set out to attack you. I’m not talking about those times. I’m referring to conversations that start out innocent enough and end in an argument because people have different opinions. We have a choice about when and where to get our blood pressure up, raise our voice, and make a scene. Most people do not change their opinion simply because someone disagrees with them. I certainly don’t. I need to be presented with new facts that make sense to me, before I change my outlook. It is an act of kindness and self care to remain neutral if someone says something you disagree with.
