When the world feels against you
These events in our lives push us to grow. It's an opportunity. I like what said "Stay balanced and watch as a spectator". We(all humans) personalize everything! When we don't it helps us let go of those emotions we put in cages and hold onto.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
― Frank Herbert,
That works for any "pent-up" emotion if we don't respond to it, or react. Their emotion becomes our emotion, unless we let it go.
They are not just against you. They work against each other as well. It isn't personally directed at you. It's their personal inadequacy that they project onto you. It's our choice to accept it or reject it. It is hard to do when they believe what they do and feel is justified. Just know that it isn't. Humans are really really stupid. I say that not to condemn humanity, but to let you know they are not right. No matter how sure they are. We all have to rise above our own stupidity.
I have leaned that, as much as I'd like to, I can't fix everyone . They fix themselves. I can facilitate that fix if I don't respond to their anger and frustration. I let it pass through me and can see things as they are.
