Throughout my 38 years on this planet called earth I’ve realized that due to lack of communication, poor boundaries and strong feelings things can escalate and snowball. Oh my…How draining it is. Choose your circle wisely, my friends. Even when it’s a friend or friends it’s difficult to distinguish if they truly understand you. If they understand your overall vibe, the words you use and your intentions. Geeze. I had an experience where I was doing self-care before helping someone else. They always say to put your own oxygen mask on yourself before helping others. So, that’s what I’ve been doing the last few years. When I was honest with them hoping to clue them into my life and what’s going on. They immediately took offense. My longing to help as halted. I thought to myself I should have better boundaries. I wasn’t good with boundaries to begin with. I didn’t even know what it was and the intent behind them. In fact, I was a raging mess. Yes, said it. A raging mess. Unfortunately, I have lost a valuable friend, mentor, and resource due to my ignorance and rage. Yep. Something I’m not proud of.
This blog post is about escalation and snowballing effect so I should get back to it. I also had an experience where I was injured and due to policies and procedures, I immediately had to dive into the paperwork of being able to take time off to heal. Al the red tape and paperwork. Oh my. How it snowballed. One little injury and boom I was in Human Resources trying to jump through hoops to make sure that I had the time off necessary to heal.
What do you do and how do you repsond when things escalate and snowball?
Remember, it’s a beautiful world. Take a closer look. Open up your heart and trust.
