When people do, or say, hurtful thinks to me - and unfortunately they do, and say, quite a lot - I can  turn the focus onto my own wound. From this place, I can be tender and gently soothe myself and  attend to what I can control- my own reactivity!

I breathe deeply.  I remind myself that others cannot hurt the deepest  part of me - ever!  This practice allows freedom.
