Having perfect self-control, so that you never have a reaction to people’s attacks or attempts to “push your buttons.” I wish I had it. I can usually avoid saying or doing anything, but I often find my face getting red, my heart beating faster, and I can feel lousy for hours afterward. It may be my choice to react that way, but it sure doesn’t feel that way in the moment. But what about attacks on other people. Do you “not take it personally” and “never get offended” when you witness someone attacking someone else? Just a thought.
