Rude or Mean Words......

“…when somebody says something to you that is rude or designed to hurt,  ‘instead of going into unconscious reaction and negativity, such as attack, defense, or withdraw, you let it pass right through you’ as though you were transparent, so that it no longer hits a solid ‘wall’ inside you.  That does not mean of course that you don’t tell ‘that person that his or her behavior is unacceptable, if that is what you choose to do.  But that person no longer has the power to control your inner state.  You are then in your power-not in someone else’s.” 

“Light in the Wilderness,” M. Catherine Thomas, P 83-84
