One of the things that can cause us stress and frustration is what we think of how other people treat us.
You know what though?
We don't have control over that.
You have no control over what people say to you.
Or, what they say about you.
You have no control over what other people do either.
It's frustrating, because we think we should have more control over other people.
Or, we think, "They should know better."
The thing is, they have their own context.
They have their own worldview.
It's not necessarily right or wrong.
It just is. And, we can decide if we want to engage with that or not.
It doesn't mean we have to like it though.
What do you have control over?
You CAN let them know how you want to be treated.
You CAN decide what to do when someone doesn't act in a way that you feel good about.
Is there someone who's not treating you in a way that you think is respectful?
What do you want to do about it?
What kind of person do you want to be?
