There’s a saying along the lines of, “be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
Inside each of us, a battle is raging. The battle is between two parts of ourselves – the child and the adult.
The child in you is controlled by fear and insecurity and wants to remain safe and dependent on adults.
The adult part of you yearns to assert mastery over the fears that sabotage independent, creative thought and action.
Remember, at each moment you’re engaged in that battle you’re choosing whether to allow the child or the adult in you to determine your thoughts and emotions.
To build your emotional intelligence, it’s important to pay attention to your feelings and accept them. But in doing so it’s vital that you examine them in the light of your adult self.
Then choose actions that are consistent with being fully independent and free.
So, how goes the battle for you?
