Get Curious Where Feelings Come From
Just because we’re feeling something — like anger, sadness, or hurt — doesn’t mean that it justifies or excuses our behaviors.
If we’re too quick to react when we’re activated we can make more mistakes.
While we all sometimes react in ways we regret, slowing down and learning where our feelings come from helps us respond better.
Our feelings are valid but we're still responsible for our reaction.
How we respond to our feelings makes the difference between regret or self-empowerment.
Radically accepting all our feelings with compassion is the pathway to a thoughtful response.
Others don't force us to feel certain ways even if they impact us.
By owning our feelings, instead of blaming others for them, we can be self-reflective and curious.
Pausing long enough to understand our feelings gives us the chance to match it to our response.
We all react in ways we regret.
We learn and do better by taking responsibility for our behaviors and where they come from.
