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 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.
