How To Stop Getting Offended Easily

Dec 27, 2018
 

Do you find yourself thinking: If they didn't do that then I wouldn't be feeling this way, and how could they? Don't they realize that that goes against everything I stand for? How dare they.

People are just doing what works for them, and what gets them through the day. They're really not thinking about you in that moment.

And guest what? You don't have to stop getting offended.

What I highly suggest you do is stop allowing your emotions to dictate your actions towards others. Allow that BAM! of being offended. Allow it to be an alert signal for you to realize: Okay, this situation kinda sucks, because what they're saying doesn't connect to my values, and thank you body for alerting me to that. 

Then, take a step back, and allow yourself even just 10 seconds to inhale, feel those emotions in your body, exhale and send your body love and gratitude for warning you.

Then take a step that honors you, and does the best to your ability to even honor that human being, who's doing its best with what it knows that's standing in front of you or on the other side of that computer screen. Do what you can to send that type of feeling, emotion into this world.

I challenge you, I suggest to you, try that. And if you need some help with this kind of way of being, because it kinda goes against what's out there in the world, I'd love for you to join me in The Nourishing Nook Facebook group, where you'll be surrounded by people who also believe in taking this step back and slowing our pace down. So that we can see the human being behind the situation, and we can connect to that person, whether we agree with them or not.
