PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, February 11th, 2009 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“The most profound learning you do happens when you find yourself reacting strongly to what someone else says or does. While the tendency in this situation is to focus on the other person’s behavior, the truth is that your reaction has nothing to do with the other person. You reaction shows where you are in conflict, not where the other person is.

All conflict comes from some kind of guilt or insecurity you are feeling. If you are feeling insecure about your intelligence and someone comes along and calls you stupid, your buttons get pushed. The reaction comes from your insecurity. The trigger is incidental. Anyone could push your buttons.”

Paul Ferrini in, “The Silence Of The Heart”
