We all have our own story to manage but when we allow our “buttons” to be pushed by others, we ditch our own story in favor of starring in someone else’s. And why would we want to co-star in someone else’s drama?
We all have button pushers in our lives (usually family and significant others). The ability to identify these culprits and their button-pushing strategies is the key to owning your power and putting it back into YOU. You should never allow yourself to feel undermined, compromised or disrespected by others. If you notice this behavior and you notice that your reaction is to fight back, then STOP, take a breath, step back from the situation and take yourself out of that story. Clearly it is not your story. By fighting venom with venom, you pull yourself down into that person’s story and it is a long way back to yourself.
The degree to which you will live a balanced and harmonious life is the degree to which you allow yourself to stay focused on YOUR story. Pull back your power and put it where it belongs – into YOU. Your happiness and equanimity of mind is found in the way you react to others. Allowing your buttons to be pushed is a way to guarantee that you will never be emotionally balanced and free. It’s your story, no one else’s. You can only control your story, no one else’s. So stop co-starring in other peoples’ stories and take the lead role in your own. Your story will end in a much better production with a much happier ending.
