The other day something happened that left me feeling upset and angry.
I was out for my daily walk in the evening when a bunch of acquaintances passed by. There was some chit-chat and one of them shot a taunt aimed directly at me.
I was taken aback, but didn’t respond mainly because of the shock. I chose not to make a big deal of it, but those words have lingered in my mind.
The one question that’s bothering me is, how to get even, or get over such situations? Sound familiar?
Rude remarks from undiscerning people are all too common at workplaces, social gatherings and even coming from friends. So if any such incident happened in your life, even if long ago, and you cannot shrug it off, this EFT Tapping will help you. It has helped me for sure.
EFT tapping set up
Even though I just can’t get over those rude words they blurted out, I want to drop this matter like hot coal instead of carrying around the hurt till eternity.
Even though I hate that person for saying those things, and I’m frothing at the leash to get even, all this mental whirring is wasting so much of my energy that I can use doing enjoyable things instead. It sounds difficult, but I do want to feel peaceful.
Even though I’m still in shock about how someone can say such things, I’m open to relaxing a little bit and walking away without feeling like a loser who cannot shoot back.
