There’s an opportunity for growth when confronted with harsh negativity.
We can react in the moment with primal emotion – usually a waste of energy and dignity.
We can respond in the moment – mindfully and skillfully retaliate without invested emotion.
We can let it go – a wise choice knowing you ‘cannot drink poison and kill your enemies’.
Or, we can also channel that negativity to motivate and create energy for positive change.
With clarity and defined purpose, a negative kick in the ass can be just the thing we need to keep marching forward!
