“When Someone’s Behavior Affects Me, What Can I Do?”

When someone’s behavior is affecting you, what can you do, other than blame them?


We Are Not Separate

Some authors suggest that, when we are healthy enough, we will not be affected by others‘ unloving verbal behavior. We will rise above it and not take their words personally – that “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.”

I strongly disagree.

Staying Centered in Conflict

Are you conflict-avoidant? Does conflict terrify you? Discover how to heal this.

The Steps to Healing From Betrayal

  1. Releasing the feelings rather than staying stuck with them
