When we are triggered, our initial instinct is to fight back or stand up for ourselves using words that often come out as confrontational. Immediately after the trigger, we produce a negative thought, which leads to a negative emotion, which always produces a negative outcome. But if you use my ABC method, it will mitigate the negative thought from occurring, and thus, give you a much better outcome!
“Always Be Curious” will help you put resentment and unresolved anger aside and give you the upper hand, rather than leaving a situation feeling hurt and vulnerable. It will save you a lot of stress, so take a listen!
