Choose to Respond, Not React ~ Eric Raines ~ 21 November 2019

Life is too short to start your day with broken pieces of yesterday
It will defiinitely destroy your good today & ruin your great tomorrow

Every moment is an opportunity to choose.
Choose to explore love, choose to explore connection and fellowship.

We already know what fear, anger, shame, blame and guilt feel like, choose to try something different.

Recognize when people attack you or make your life miserable that they feel the same emotion they are trying to create in you. It hurts so much that it causes them to lash out in order to see others share their pain, making them feel better until it builds up again.

We can hold incredibly powerful boundaries powered by love and a smile.

"I refuse to engage with you on this level. If you want to have an adult conversation, we can do that, but until then, this is unacceptable and I will not allow you to treat me this way. I love you and hope you find a solution to your pain."

Do not engage in the reaction they are looking for, instead, inhale your smile into those feelings and refuse to let them stick.

Choose to respond, not to react
