Do you find yourself getting all heated up when someone doesn’t accept what you are saying?
Does it make you feel the urge to prove that you have the facts on your side?
Are you caught in a tsunami of energy that makes you want to force the other person to bow to your knowledge and your authority on the subject?
You are probably fighting a losing battle. Even though you ‘know’ it at one level, you are compelled and obsessed with making every effort to prove that you are right.
It is an obsession. Something that hijacks your emotions and makes you keep going, until you are drained and defeated. STRESS, STRESS AND MORE STRESS.
Whenever you are in a conflict and the other person doesn’t accept what you say without question memories of being made to feel foolish and incompetent get triggered and you are forced into a battle for your very soul.
Watch this video and get a great tip on allowing yourself the right to get your truth out there, but without having to go through the shame, embarrassment and defeat of trying to prove something to someone who isn’t likely to care one way or the other.
