I would like you to join the conversation, but first let me challenge you in your response:
* Note the word "immediately." Think on that for a minute.
* See if you can dialogue without saying, "Yeah, but ..."
* Only think about yourself. I get it. You're already thinking of a handful of people who do this, have done this or are currently doing this. This is about self-reflection.
* In only thinking about yourself, own it. Admit it out loud.
To help you be a little more brave in your vulnerability, let me quote what one friend shared in her response: "Certain issues will trigger more extreme reactions in me--usually an issue that I am uncomfortable with on a personal level & don't want to address!"
