So, i’ve been thinking….As an intuitive mentor, I interact with people daily from various backgrounds, cultures and religions.
Most people who contact me are seeking guidance in regard to relationship issues; be it romantic, family dischord, friendships, work, etc.
A common theme I encounter regularly is blame shifting. “How could they do this to me?” “He/she is constantly making me feel like shit, unimportant, invisible, like a loser, etc.
I have been really thinking on this dynamic for a while now and this morning it just clicked.
Nobody else ever has the power to make us feel anything.
Please, read that statement again.
Sure, others can trigger us and bring our own deepest insecurities, fears and false beliefs to the surface, and they will, guaranteed. However we give our personal power away by allowing others to define us and/or dictate how we feel, think, or what we believe.
Do you see it? This is where we learn to become more self aware and use these triggers as a source of inner healing and soul growth.
Now there are situations that are downright abusive such as narcissism and sociopathy, and i would never suggest remaining involved in situations with people who fit that profile, but as we begin to recognize the triggers that others activate in us, and heal the core wounds associated with them we get to a place where others actions might irritate us temporarily, but they no longer affect us beyond that place of momentary irritation.
This is an extremely empowering place to be my loves. I hope you can really get this today ❤
