Who Am I Being?

Fort Worth, Texas

A realization that has made all of the difference in my life:

Stop analyzing the words and actions of the person you feel hurt by.  Instead, choose to look at yourself.  You are not a victim.  Do not ask why this is happening to you.  Do not ask why this person is doing this to you.  Instead, have the courage to ask yourself:

WHO AM I BEING that someone would believe they have permission to behave like this in my life?  And then, forgive yourself for contributing to the creation of an environment where that person felt welcomed to treat you in any way other than wonderful, and change it.  The only thing scarier than change is never changing.

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu!
