how they act is their karma, how you react is yours 

when we soften to our triggers, notice them, we can see our wounds. when we allow wounds to be what they are, just that a wound, not fuelling them with fear, judgement, criticism or insecurity we make space to shift, to move beyond the habitualized victim instinct. we give ourselves the power to grow. 

the next time you are impacted emotionally by words, actions or circumstances - see if you can identify, soften and shift. 

it doesnt take long, and it changes everything
