Do you react sensitively about the comments other people, even those you feel are your friends today? Taking into consideration that they may have the best intentions, the things that others say may make you feel vulnerable. Perhaps it is because you wish to receive acknowledgement from them for the things that you have done, or it might be because you feel that everyone should interact with consideration and thoughtfulness.
Either way, you may want to create a technique to focus within and find a way to protect yourself from the things that can hurt you. If you should feel susceptible today, you might want to imagine that you are surrounded by a gleaming bubble. glimmering shell. In the Wizard of OZ Glenda used her bubble to bring peace and excitement as she approached Munchkin Land. This bubble shell is permeable but only allows in thoughts and words that are affirming and comforting. Using this technique when you feel exposed can help you create a space that is healing and safe.
When we create a bubble or space around us that is free from negativity protects us from the things that others say. When we feel sensitive, or even sad, part of our feelings may be due to the ways in which we react to others as much as to what is was said.
Learning to set our own boundaries either through observation, visualization or communication lets us react in a way that is healthy for us and gives us enough perspective to see what is really going on in the interaction.
When we search and find a way to care for yourself, when you feel uncertain or hurt in your conversations today, you will be able to respond in a positive and supportive way. And as a bonus, our communications can lead us to more joy and adventure.
