Inspiration this morning comes from hearing the Dalai Lama interviewed on BBC Radio 4. yesterday he was honoured with an annual Templeton prize worth 1,100,000 of which is giving the majority to Save the Children.
He discussed how he handles the emotion of anger - he doesn't 'do it' - he says that allowing himself to get angry harms him more then whatever he's angry about. He obviously doesn't let anger eats him up the way sadly too many do.
Interested in someone but can't tell they're a bit of a game player? Sometimes we're drawn like magnets to people we know might not be very reliable, etc. it's a challenge - you probably realize that you might be finding it hard to resist. I've tackled this issue in my weekly Love Clinic at iVillage UK. Check it out if you're in this situation.
TODAY’S TIP: there are two simple rules to follow in these situations – 1/ what's your intuition telling you? Listen to it! It's probably right about this person.
2/ What's your motivation for wanting to get involved with someone like that? Do you like a bit of a drama? Or is your self-esteem quiet living you figure you can't do any better?
Handle these situations very carefully so you don't get burnt. Understand what your motivation is to be involved with this sort of person and it'll make you stronger.
Take care, Pamx
