“This is what I have learned about the people around us: Whenever somebody triggers something in you, pushes a button, causes an unpleasant sensation for you, do not look at that person. Look at yourself. Ask yourself, “What is it in me that is making me react this way?”
Your reaction is alwaysabout something in you. Think about it — when you are feeling good about yourself, confident, centered, other people cannot affect you. You can tolerate them because you look at them with love and as fellow humans. If they push your buttons, there is something in you that is off-kilter, unexamined, or unresolved.”
Doris Roper, in “WAKE UP Your Life!”
