When faced with confrontation do you head for the hills or walk straight in? Was there ever a time you wished you’d had the opposite reaction?

I struggle with both fight and flight depending on the scenario. I can be very cruel and use Satan’s tongue to lash out or I freak out and run away to “anywhere but here”.

As I have grown I have finally began to realize that I have issues with both of these responses and often over react to a situation. I have begun trying to listen, really listen to what is being said. I try to express myself in healthier ways, like writing, before I face the situation head on.

Taking time to breathe.

To pray.

To clear my mind and come back and try to understand, flipping out or running away have brought me nowhere fast.

I will often read back on my 1000+ gifts and realize how incredibly blessed I am.
