I noticed something this past week.
I’ve been prickly, after hanging out with people again.
I was defensive, annoyed and down right angry at a few of them. .
By Saturday, I saw my pattern and was reminded:
No one can make me feel anything.
But I was definitely feeling some emotions
I got curious about the various reactions I was having.
I actually started giggling at myself.
I realized that my reactions had NOTHING to do with the people I was with.
I’m just not used to hanging out with groups of people.
It’s been a while (like 16 months!!!!)
My point to all this:
Give yourself grace as you engage again with more people.
Get curious about your thoughts.
Love your humans. Take care of yourself. Manage your mind.
