Ep. 159 Taking Things Personally - Heidi Benjaminsen Coaching

Ep. 159 Taking Things Personally

We take things personally (or are easily offended) when our brain thinks we are constantly being attacked.  We think there is danger in the words, actions and inactions of everyone around us.  Regardless of why we may take things too personally, it IS possible to become more confident, stronger emotionally.

Listen to hear Heidi share very detailed examples of how to pause and pivot AWAY from being offended and taking things personally.  This requires us to feel and acknowledge how we are feeling, determine if there is intent to hurt, and determine if we agree with any part of what is being said.   In every situation we get to choose who we want to be, who we want to attract and who we want to repel in our lives.

Easily offended people REPEL confident people and create disconnection in their world.  Learning not to take things personally ATTRACTS stable, anchored and calm people into our world. Confident women can see reality and their human qualities with grace, humor and awareness. 

Our teens learn learn to be less defensive when they see us take things less personally.

Hi, I'm Heidi

I help mothers of teenagers create inner confidence, calm and happiness.  The more anchored a mother is, the more secure her children will feel.  Calm is contagious.
