836. Responding to others

People have their own agendas 

they have a voice, a story, in their head 

And it’s often different than ours

That’s not a problem – it’s reality 

The problem comes when we let people’s agendas become our agenda

Because we have a voice in our head, a story, a plan 

Whether we realize it or not, if we’re acting emotionally or logically 

Sometimes these things end up on a big scale (moving to a different state) 

Some on a small scale (come over for dinner) 

And a million others 

And a way to help us move the needle forward is knowing our story – what we want, and where we are going vs floating on life – reacting to these external ‘arrows” being shot at us – for better or worse.
