Poor Behaviors Aren't Necessary
Just because we feel strongly about something doesn’t mean we have the right to treat others poorly.
This isn’t about perfection or being robotic, it’s about learning and taking responsibility for our lives
We can express our intense anger, hurt and disappointment & set appropriate boundaries without going on a character attack and injuring others.
Our feelings are valid but how we respond to them matters.
Our feelings aren't right or wrong even if they're sometimes irrational, illogical or misplaced.
When we pause to understand our feelings we're able to respond in a more thoughtful way.
Others don't "make us" behave in certain ways even if they're responsible for their impact.
Just because we feel something doesn't mean what we imagine happening did.
Sometimes our feelings are reactions from past experiences we imagine happening now.
Caring for our feelings and getting to know them is the pathway to having greater choices.
