People or circumstances that take you out of your power have extraordinary value. They reveal your limiting beliefs, fears and false assumptions. The celebrated psychologist Carl Jung once said- Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
How much would you pay someone who promised that they could pinpoint exactly what is holding you back from your greatest life. The things that irritate, annoy and anger you are the entry points into your evolution and elevation as a human being. They are the signposts for what you need to work on and the fears you need to face. You can blame the people who trigger you and make it all about them. Or you can do the wise thing and look deeply into yourself to discover the reasons for your negative reaction. Because how can you overcome a fear you are not aware of? And how can you transcend an insecurity you don’t even know you have.?
Kahil Gibran wrote- I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind, yet strange, I am grateful to those teachers.
