This post may be a bit. . . confrontational. But let me be clear that change requires a change. Something must shift. A new perspective must develop. And personal growth is part of that.
Here’s why I think this topic today is so important: on an almost daily basis, I hear from clients by email or in phone calls. They tell me the same line:
“I can’t help how I reacted! My spouse (pushed my buttons/disrespected me/made me angry/hurt my feelings/said mean things/was a jerk/….”
In that mindset, the person is just a puppet, responding to the outside world, thinking that the reaction is completely justified and understandable.
Change comes when you make the change. A different response changes the trajectory of your relationship. At this point, ONLY YOU can do that!
So, are you owning your response? Are you choosing your response?
Or do you continue to view your reaction as “can’t help it, makes sense, not my fault, etc., etc.”?
Time to make a shift.
