“… often ask ourselves, “Am I doing to others as I would have them do to me—today?” 12&12p93
When I feel victimized, and I react in a mean way, I become the very thing I detest: the victimizer.
In order to avoid becoming that guy, I pray, meditate, get good sleep, work my program, eat well, exercise, get to meetings, handle responsibilities and make sure I have play time. Then, when I am triggered, I can say what I mean nicely, detaching when necessary, without being abusive.
This new approach to my unmet expectations of others keeps me close to my HP, where ILML!
