For just a moment, think about the last time you experienced a heavy conversation, or an uncomfortable experience with someone.
Are you aware that your reactions and responses were all about you?
Quite possibly the other party was blaming you (directly or indirectly…directly, “you make me _____”; indirectly, “You are so _____”).
Maybe you were placing blame upon them, or maybe you were both blaming each other.
But the truth is, their reaction was about THEM, and your actions/reactions/responses were all about YOU.
Everything anyone says or does is always about them.
Everything you say or do is always about you.
And, most importantly, Everyone is doing the best they can at any given time.
How does this change your perspective of the experience in question?
Be gentle with yourself. 🙂
