Accountability For How We Respond Matters

Choice. Discernment. Responsiveness. Accountability.

All of these elements are essential to me when engaged with critical or argumentative people. I know I have a choice in how I respond. I can use discernment to identify within myself what part of what they are sharing with me bothers me and explore what healing I need to do around that. I can be responsive to my own needs and accountable for getting those needs met. And, I can do it all from an empowered place. And so can you.

What I love about this is just recognizing where the discordant energy is coming from and choosing not to engage. What are your thoughts?
