Every time we blame we give our power away. If how you feel depends upon what somebody does or say you give that power to do so. Even if it is a memory. And this may go deep. But if you think about it, when it is somebody else's fault then you can't do anything about it to change it.
Whether it's your parent, lover, friend or colleague, we all have people who trigger us. Sound familiar? If so, here are eight powerful ways you can deal with difficult people who push your buttons.
You show the world one person, but know there is a different one within, waiting to come out and be seen. You are ready to become this person, your true self, and are wondering how to do so.

There is no right or wrong way to experience your Higher Self, but it is important to pay attention until you are sure you can discern it. Then you can learn to listen to it. This level of attainment also shifts our relationship to the ego.
My internal arguments would be a bit embarrassing to replay -- but they are part of being human. Watching my mind at work has been such a humbling and wisdom-building process. It is amazing how my ego can see "danger" in harmless situations.
