Critical, Judgmental and Antagonistic — What to Do? Video Presentation
Posted by Second Chance to Live on August 16, 2013
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. Thank you for making the decision to stop by to visit with me. Several days ago I wrote and published an article on Second Chance to Live. Today I am going to create a video presentation of this article. As you watch and listen to the presentation and questions come to mind, please send those questions to me. All questions are good questions. Below is an excerpt from the article. I look forward to hearing from you.
‘I have been thinking about some thing that I would like to share with you. During some journaling today some “dots” of my thinking connected. I have been aggravated about several things for quite a while. Recently, I had an awareness that because I am powerless over these things I need to stop being critical of them. But then I realized I needed to look a little closer.
This week I started to revisit a concept that I have learned from Dr.’s Margaret and Jordan Paul. The concept of Inner Bonding. In Dr. Margaret Paul’s book, Inner Bonding she talks about the concept of the intent to protect and the intent to learn. One of the principles – from what I understand – of inner bonding is when I am in a state of judgment or criticism I abandon myself. Instead of having the motivation to learn, I seek to protect myself. Instead of growing from the circumstances, I am stymied by them.
Instead of learning from what I am experiencing, I seek to defend a part of myself that I am judging and criticizing. Instead of learning from my discomfort, I can find myself feeling shame and feeling isolated.
What I learned from my journaling this morning is that when I am in a critical state – being critical of myself or other people – I am unconsciously choosing to be antagonistic.”
