Just because it is true...doesn't mean it is helpful. .
I am constantly challenged to focus on the quality of my words and inner mental chatter. It's hard to believe how simply changing the way I say/see things gives me power in my life. I am not a victim to anything. Everything happens for a reason. Everything is working out for the greater good. It's also hard to believe how simply changing one heart changes the world. You are part of this story, and you are some piece in everyone else's story. (Even if it is as general as member of the population.) We are writing the story right now. Writing history. The world changing is simply me changing. You changing. That is all we have to focus on. Surrender ourselves and allow others to grow in their timing. Ester often says, "words do not teach..true knowing comes from life experience." #gratitude#cats#acroyoga#love#now#joy
Covered a really interesting social model of human interaction with coaching trainees recently called ‘The Drama Triangle’. When our interactions with one another are unhealthy we often tend to default to a particular role:
Persecutor - focused on blame game and criticising others
Victim - ‘Poor Me’! Feel helpless and powerless
Rescuer - seek to help but actions can often simply enable victim and make them feel even more dependent. Rescuer also often does this to help them ignore their own insecurities and anxieties.... While we tend to have a main default (my own is Rescuer) we can easily shift to one of the other two roles depending on the interaction e.g. boss being persecutor and employee feeling victim... Thankfully there is an alternative.... will share in next post 😉
