Don’t you hate it when someone is really getting on your nerves or when someone is not giving you the proper attention or when someone is really messing up the moment for you? Let’s face it. We all have our moments when we simply want to curse a person out or ignore them completely or simply slap or punch him or her across the face. However, in these moments of negativity, we usually never look at ourselves and say “How am I contributing to this situation?” If we were honest with ourselves, we would have to admit that we usually get so upset with another person because we allow the other person to push an insecure button in our ego that turns on our anger, our hurt, our pain, our frustration, our annoyance. We forget that we are fully responsible for this insecurity and the reaction behind this core emotion in the situation. In fact, we do not remember that everything that is going on around us is going on inside of us on a conscious or subconscious level. It is difficult for us to take on that much responsibility because we feel that we would have to then turn all that reactive emotions on ourselves which does not have to necessarily be the case. Yes, we do have to face our emotions but we do not have to face them in a negative way. We can see our true selves with kindness and unconditional love finding peace within so that we can truly not give two flying fig newton treats about what anyone has to say or feel about us because we will recognize that no one or nothing outside of us can affect our internal happiness. We can learn to allow their ways to be what they are and still love them unconditionally, which ironically, can be the biggest slap of them all to their ego.
