NEVER in the History...
...of getting people to calm down, have the words, "Calm down", worked effectively.
I know I have tried it, in the past; before I learned that people's feelings ARE valid, and they need to be allowed to process them.
Many people just can't handle others' raw feelings - at times, it triggers into their own; causing a "talk to the hand", "not my circus, not my monkeys", reaction.
Having actively worked on my responses to my own triggers has helped me, immensely; but am not quite there, yet. #lifegoal
Do you have problems reacting to people's "reactions"??! Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Thank you, have a good day, and be safe... #2022YOU ***beamererin.com*** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes firstname.lastname@example.org
