Radical Acceptance II
November 19, 2013 § 2 Comments
The irony of yesterday’s post is that today I’m presented with a highly charged situation where radical acceptance is required more than ever. Imagine this: someone grossly oversteps your personal boundaries, you speak up about it (when asked, by said transgressor), and then get called mean for stating the facts plainly. Apart from viewing said transgressor as nothing more than a spoilt brat who’s lashing out because the response she got wasn’t the response she wanted, I find myself caught in the vortex of raging anger, trying to find the center, trying to open myself and be the emotion instead of retaliating with more snark, which would only encourage more brat-ness.
Somedays I really wish I was a hermit. People – especially those with a serious entitlement complex – are so fucking tiring to deal with.
