WHEN CHALLENGED BY ANOTHER ASK WHAT DEFENSIVE BEHAVIOR OF OURS IS ASKING TO BE RELEASED
We all face challenges, but they can be more poignant when we are being directly challenged by another in conversation. When this happens without realizing it, we can be taken from a seemingly calm state to a very defensive one. Feeling justified by their domineering or abrasive behavior we start to match it, raising our voice,
to be heard. Defending our right to be to an opinion; defending our right to be Right !
However, pretty soon we have become embroiled in a conflict and feel agitated and annoyed as it becomes a battle of wills, often walking away with a feeling of annoyance as we try to avoid the situation . Yet what I'm suggesting is there is another reason why this is occurring, and that rather than fighting the other, we can look within ourselves and see what wound we are carrying that made us feel shut down, often related to when we were children, by our parents, siblings or teachers.
This present moment irritation is a gift pointing us to look at what behavior of our own are we repeating and instead of avoiding challenges we challenge ourselves and ask what is it time for me to release? What wound is keeping me small and no longer serving me ? When we recognize and drop this we free ourselves from the restriction of its avoidance and open ourselves to liberation.
