But know you can’t
Life is full of challenges and can be down-right hard sometimes. Those difficulties are often exacerbated by our own responses to negative situations. In a day-and-age where we are asked to consume affirmations for breakfast, always bring our A-game, and give 110%, what happens when you fall apart and just want to bitch-slap someone?
Join me for some deeply honest conversations with Chris Templeton of “Oh The Stories We Tell.” He believes that by understanding the running dialogue in your head — the stories you tell yourself — you can begin a practice of creating behaviors that serve you best.
These dialogues began as Shelter-in-Place online meetings and are frank exchanges about the personal hurdles that come our way.
How do I create enough space between mad-to-bad behavior that allows me to professionally handle horrible co-workers?
This episode is about female co-workers who walk into a job, come on like gangbusters, and refuse to back-down. Once someone gets up my nose, I have a hard time not sounding defensive when all my regular tactics break down.
Chris has some thoughts on how to create space between the stimulus (the bee-ach) and the reaction (my annoyance) so that I can stop my day from getting highjacked by a meanie.
