There is power in the pause.
When we are feeling discomfort and anger towards someone who is being unkind/rude to us, rather than responding with a knee-jerk reaction…
…what would happen if you instead took a pause?
There’s strong energy in emotion, both the ones labeled good or bad.
And when you pause, you have the opportunity to not add to it.
When you pause, you have awareness.
It allows discernment. The opportunity to share a kinder, more creative, and more effective response.
It doesn’t mean that you condone something you believe to be wrong, it simply means you are responding from a place of kindness and love.
