Watch their eyes---they light up. As quickly as I can I return to thinking: “that’s and interesting point of view they have” and “it’s interesting I have an opposite point of view.”
As you just stand there and play those thoughts watch the other person---they go bonkers and REALLY start to overreact. Then you know it was never anything wrong with you---it was addiction---they needed a drama fix and you were there. It was never about right or wrong---it was their wanting a drama fix. When people are in their heart they don’t attack.
Will you unplug from the drama-suckers today?
